Doctoral student and Carceral Cultures research initiative team member Matthew Ferguson has co-authored a paper with Justin Piché (Associate Professor) and Kevin Walby (Associate Professor - uWinnipeg Criminal Justice) published in Policing & Society: An International Journal of Research and Policy. The article, "Representations of Detention and Other Pains of Law Enforcement in Police Museums in Ontario, Canada", explores police museums as a form of penal tourism.  The piece is the first publication based on Ferguson's master's thesis, "Penal Spectatorship at Three Police Museums in Ontario", and the SSHRC-funded project led by professors Piché and Walby entitled "A Culture of Justice? Meanings of Penality in Canadian Police, Courthouse and Prison Museums".
