Review of David Moffette's book in Border Criminologies

Screen Shot 2019-06-28 at 12.56.21 PM.png

Border Criminologies, a blog of the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford, published a review of Governing Irregular Migration: Bordering Culture, Labour and Security in Spain published by David Moffette (Assistant Professor) at UBC Press. The author of the review, Laura Cleton (PhD candidate at the University of Antwerp), claims that: “Moffette’s final chapter sets out a promising research agenda by pointing to the need for research on ‘governing through probation’. The chapter discusses the rightful importance of temporality in migration governance and considers the ‘slowing down of time’ as an intentional technology of government which needs further research. Scholars working on the connections between precariousness, conditionality, the continuous assessment of desirability and disposability of migrant labour will find Governing Irregular Migration: Bordering Culture, Labour and Security in Spain an inspiring, insightful and practical guide with a broad agenda for further research.”

Student blog post: "Death by Deregulation" by Sandrine Haentjens

Sandrine Haentjens (undergraduate student) was a student in CRM 3310: Corporate and White Collar Crime during the winter 2019 semester. This blog is a summary of the term paper she wrote on the Lac-Mégantic rail disaster, which killed 47 people and spilled thousands of litres of crude oil into the town’s lake. For Sandrine this disaster is a clear example of a corporate crime, one that demands immediate social, political and academic scrutiny.

Lemonde, Strimelle et Vanhamme publient un nouveau livre sur la justice

Screen Shot 2019-06-13 at 9.41.30 AM.png

Véronique Strimelle (Professeure agrégée), Françoise Vanhamme (Professeure agrégée) et leur collègue Anne Lemonde (Institut national belge de criminalistique et de criminologie & Université Libre de Bruxelles) viennent de faire paraître un nouvel ouvrage collectif intitulé JUSTICE! Conflits de savoirs, savoirs en conflit dans la section Livres et actes de la plateforme Érudit. L’ouvrage, qui est disponible en livre accès, “explore les conflits de savoirs dans le champ du travail criminologique, soit sur les plans théoriques, techniques, pratiques, d’expertise, de sens commun... Savoirs en concurrence, déni de savoir, dévalorisation ou récupération qui émergent de communautés épistémiques ou de communautés de pratique, toutes ces facettes de la question traitée en viennent à interroger à leur manière la légitimation des savoirs. Quoi de moins étonnant dans une discipline aussi sensible aux enjeux normatifs et aux questions de pouvoir, de domination, de valeurs, de justice que l’est la criminologie critique, dont les caractéristiques rejoignent de plus des traits forts de la pensée postmoderne ?” (extrait du résumé).

Sandra Lehalle et Jennifer Kilty gagnent le Prix d'excellence en enseignement de la Faculté / Sandra Lehalle and Jennifer Kilty receive the Faculty's Excellence in Teaching Award

Screen Shot 2019-06-12 at 1.17.42 PM.png

Sandra Lehalle (Professeure agrégée) et Jennifer Kilty (Professeure agrégée) ont conjointement reçu le Prix d'excellence en enseignement 2019 de la Faculté des sciences sociales pour le projet Walls to Bridges. Le cours créé dans le cadre de ce programme est offert à l’intérieur même des murs de la prison. Le programme permet de regrouper à l’intérieur d’une même classe les étudiants non-incarcérés et les étudiants incarcérés, favorisant ainsi les échanges entre des groupes d’individus ayant connu des expériences de vie très différentes. Le cours a été dispensé pour la première fois à l’hiver 2018, auprès d’un groupe d’environ 15 étudiants qui se sont rencontrés à toutes les semaines dans les locaux du Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre.

Sandra Lehalle (Associate Professor) and Jennifer Kilty (Associate Professor) jointly received the Faculty of Social Sciences's 2019 Excellence in Teaching Award for the Walls to Bridges project. The course created as part of this program is offered inside prison walls. It gathers in the same classroom incarcerated and non-incarcerated students, providing space for exchanges between groups of people who often have very different life experiences. The course was first taught in the winter of 2018 with some 15 students who have met weekly in a room at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre.

Katarina Bogosavljevic' MA thesis awarded the Commission on Graduate Studies in Humanities Prize

IMG_3228.jpg

Katarina Bogosavljevic (PhD Student) received the Commission on Graduate Studies in Humanities Prize for her MA thesis defended last summer.

Her thesis, titled CFL has its patient zero”: A Critical Examination of HIV Nondisclosure in the Trevis Smith Case, provides a feminist critical discourse analysis of the juridical and mediated content on Trevis Smith who was a former Canadian Football League linebacker convicted of aggravated sexual assault for not disclosing to his sexual partners that he was living with HIV. The thesis shows that Smith was initially shown sympathy by way of his construction as a philanthropist, and sports hero. However, as the case progressed his masculinity was discursively linked to racialized tropes of hypersexuality, dangerousness, and criminality due to his failure to disclose that he was HIV positive. The thesis posits that these discursive connections are part of a broader historical narrative that subjugates and controls Black men while also working to symbolically and literally segregate the Canadian HIV-negative social body from the hypersexual Black ‘AIDS fiend’. Congratulations Kat!

Christine Gervais co-authors a new article in Children & Society

Screen Shot 2019-05-18 at 12.39.16 PM.png

Christine Gervais (Associate Professor) and her colleague Elisa Romano (School of Psychology) recently published an article titled “Parental Perspectives on the Emotional, Relational and Logistical Impacts on Siblings of Youth Who Sexually Offend.” The qualitative study explores parents’ perspectives on the collateral consequences of youth sexual offending on siblings through the analysis of interview data among 16 caregivers from 10 Canadian families. Using thematic coding procedures, findings indicates that parents identified a range of safety, emotional and interpersonal impacts on siblings beginning with the criminal justice and child welfare investigations of the sexual offending and extending to siblings’ relationships with the offending youth, their caregivers and other relatives. Results demonstrate the need for greater acknowledgement of, and parent‐informed interventions that specifically address the impact of youth sexual offending on siblings by professionals and non‐professionals (e.g. relatives) alike.

Louise Fines (Professeure à temps partiel) vient de publier un nouveau livre intitulé “Les systèmes d’abus au pouvoir: Les abuseurs veulent maintenir l’ordre des choses” à l’Harmattan.

Le livre est basé sur une série  d’études de cas qui touchent des sphères sociales et politiques diverses : un constructeur automobile (Ford, Etats-Unis), un service forestier de pompiers (États-Unis), des forces policières (Royaume-Uni), une industrie qui s'occupe du nettoyage des bâtiments (États-Unis), l'affaire Weinstein dans l'industrie du cinéma (échelle mondiale), un syndicat étudiant (l'Unef, France) et les communautés de l'Église catholique (Australie).
