EMU Critical Criminology Conference

For the past three years, critical criminologists have gathered to discuss the various ways criminal justice and social justice intersect and how we as academics and activists can address those intersections. Eastern Michigan University is proud to host the fourth conference in April 2019.  This year's conference has two themes: 1) a focus on marginalized identities often overlooked or undervalued in the field and in society, and 2) discussions on how to implement the changes so often called for by critical criminologists.

We'll talk about research areas that offer important areas of engagement for critical criminologists and the changes within the field, academia, and society at large we want to argue for. We'll also discuss how to achieve those changes, including strategies and techniques for achieving social justice, discussions on critical methodologies and pedagogy, and our long-term goals as a field.

We’re working on lining up two great keynote speakers and really fascinating research panels. Two parts of the conference are new editions! The first is a poster session specifically for undergraduate and graduate students so we can see the great research done by up and coming academics. The second is a series of workshops on how critical criminologists can push the field of criminology, the criminal justice system, and academia to be more social-justice oriented.
