The conference theme is broadly conceived and we are keen to encourage papers from a variety of critical perspectives. We are particularly eager to encourage papers that are speculative, theoretically informed, future oriented, as well as those straying outside the usual parameters of mainstream criminological thought.

• Social disorder and conduct
• Social harms in their diverse forms
