Théories criminologiques et études socio-juridiques / Criminological theory and socio-legal studies

I have recently completed an ethnography about the way an emergency shelter is ordered on a daily basis and what this ordering means to the deployment of care. Based on this research, I have also completed a book manuscript provisionally titled Helter-Shelter. My next project is indebted to, and draws upon, this previous work. In it, also involving ethnography, I plan to spatialize the time of homelessness by theorizing the dialecticism of doing and not-doing that concurrently constitutes the condition of homelessness.
