Thematic Seminars (Online): Genealogical perspectives on criminalisation and figures of crime. 

May 27th/ June 11th/ June 14th

In three sessions, we explore the political and legal genealogies of what is marked and governed as crime and criminal, and the production of condensed figures of threat. It grasps social categories of crimes and criminality as produced and negotiated through laws, policies, administrative categories, political debates, imaginaries and practices.  We ask: Through which historical trajectories does criminalisation emerge as an instrument to govern groups and practices seen as a threat for moral and social orders? How do legal and crime control policies, and political debates, imaginaries and practices, frame criminalised spaces and re-shape particular figures of crime?
