The security and civilising process

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

Francis Dodsworth joined Kingston in September 2014 after ten years working at the Open University in the ERSC Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC), with a particular focus on urban studies and governmentality. Before that he studied the cultural history of crime and policing at the University of Manchester in the late 1990s during the era of the 'cultural turn', and this perspective continues to inform his research. Francis has published in a range of fields from the material culture of religion and commerce, to urban exploration and improvement, but the bulk of his work focuses on the historical sociology of crime and policing. He is co-editor (with Antonia Walford) of the forthcoming collection A World Laid Waste? Responding to the Social, Cultural and Political Consequences of Globalisation (Routledge).
