FOCUS: Crime/Criminal/Criminality

We seek submissions that explore the fluidity and the dynamics of this concept of crime/criminal/criminality from theoretical or interdisciplinary vantage points that transgress into the transgressive. The issue seeks submissions along, but not limited to, the following areas:

The philosophy of crime/criminality
The psychology of crime
A sociology of crime
The politics of crime and criminality
Historicising criminality/How the idea of the crime and criminal changes
Who/what is (a) criminal?
Crime and literature
Crime in popular culture
Criminalising gender, sex and sexuality
Crime and violence/non-violence/anti-violence
The deviant/outsider/other as criminal, or vice-versa
Decolonising the criminal
Crime and globalisation
Crime and the city: urban spaces and urban legends
The act of detection
The submissions must not be dedicated to a cursory reading of the phenomenon of crime but rather attempt to unravel the phenomenology of crime. Philosophical or theoretical approaches are welcomed as means of interpreting the concept of crime through newer avenues.


Only select few papers exploring theoretical or philosophical spaces and interdisciplinary in nature would be accepted for publication in this section.
