Lecturer in Politics & Sociology, Steph Hanlon presents at International Conference in Mumbai

In July, Programme Director and Lecturer in Politics and Sociology, Steph Hanlon presented a paper at the Third International Conference ‘Punishment in Global Peripheries‘ in the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, titled: Penal Contradictions in Postcolonial Ireland: Towards a Conceptual Framework for the Examination of New Peripheries of Punishment.  

Organised by the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford, the Conference gathers scholars from around to world to  attempt to challenge the Northern-centric approach that has dominated the literature on punishment and society.

In her paper, Steph examines how anticipation and discretion offer a rationale for the extension of administrative and criminal penalties that is mutually reinforcing and co-constitutive, and critically, the impact of colonialism on architectures and practices of contemporary pre-emptive penal strategies.
