‘Bladder Problems': the perils of recording comprehensive fieldnotes in a police setting

Please join us for this Criminology and Sociology research seminar - all are welcome.

Camilla De Camargo's research areas span the introduction and reception of neighbourhood policing and explore the often contested and resisted dominant discourses surrounding image and identity management in police (sub)culture with a particular focus on gendered uniform and equipment. Camilla is interested in proxemics; how police staff use spaces, places, and objects to extend authoritarian control. This also links in with her research on 'contamination' in occupations; how workers (particularly police officers) deal with physical, moral, and psychological contamination and stigma leading to certain occupations being regarded as 'dirty work'.
