New book series launched

Emerald Advances in Historical Criminology


A new book series in historical criminology has recently been launched - 'Emerald Advances in Historical Criminology' - which aims to publish exciting and original work which uses historical perspectives and approaches to enrich scholarship in criminology. The series is edited by David Churchill (University of Leeds and #HCNet Chair) and Christopher Mullins (Southern Illinois University), and supported by a broad international editorial board.

The series embraces a broad, pluralistic understanding of ‘the historical’ and its potential applications to criminology, and it provides an inclusive platform for a range of approaches which, in various ways, seek to orient criminological enquiry to history or to the dynamics of historical time. It welcomes both conventional studies in the history of crime and criminal justice and innovative and experimental work which extends the conceptual, theoretical, methodological and topical range of historical criminology. It also encourages historical scholarship on non-traditional topics in criminology (such as environmental harms, war and state crime) and inventive modes of theorising and practising historical research (including processual approaches and futures research). The series aims to develop a genuinely international body of scholarship in historical criminology and welcomes proposals from established and early career scholars.

More information on the series is available on the publisher’s website at the following link: https://books.emeraldinsight.com/page/series-detail/Emerald-Advances-In-Historical-Criminology/ If you have an idea for a book that might fit with the series, please get in touch either with David (d.churchill@leeds.ac.uk) or Christopher (mullinsc@siu.edu).
