Crime, Media, Culture


Crime, Media, Culture

Publisher: SAGE Publications

Crime, Media, Culture is set to be the primary vehicle for exchange between
scholars who are working at the intersections of criminological and cultural
inquiry. It will promote a broad cross-disciplinary understanding of the
relationship between crime, criminal justice, media and culture.

The crime/media culture nexus speaks to many whose work is embedded in
theories of social relations and social change, and therefore maintains high
relevance across the full spectrum of social sciences and humanities. Crime,
Media, Culture will provide a unique and much needed forum for serious
debate underpinned by empirically novel and/or theoretically rigorous

Crime, Media, Culture aims to be innovative in style and approach as well as
in subject matter. In addition to articles incorporating substantive
findings and promoting critical scholarship - that is, articles of the sort
conventionally found in leading academic journals - the editors welcome
other types of contributions, including:

(1) Photographic essays addressing issues of crime, media, and culture, with
such essays to be accompanied in some cases by commentary or exposition;

(2) Short theoretical essays or polemical pieces in the range of 1,500-3,000
words, addressing current issues, topics and debates;

(3) 'Research Notes' in the range of 1,000-3,000 words, designed to report
on ongoing study or initial research findings, or to alert other scholars to
emerging research findings or orientations;

(4) Single photographs or short 'photo-essays', with or without accompanying
commentary or exposition;

(5) Critical responses to articles published in Crime, Media, Culture ;

(6) Poetry, artwork, or other cultural productions, in some cases to be
accompanied by additional commentary or exposition;

(7) Reports on major conferences and research seminars relevant to crime,
media, and culture; and

(8) Articles that encourage or incorporate new ways of thinking about the
interrelationships between theory, research, policy and practice in the
areas of crime, media, and culture. Suggestions in this regard are welcome.
