The goal of this special edition is to publish innovative scholarly works that explore the problem of climate change caused by anthropogenic global warming from a criminological perspective.

The Critical Criminologist
Current Edition: Vol. 22, Issue 1, Fall 2013
Sadly, I report the passing of Julia Schwendinger, who together with her husband, Herman, played a central role in helping found radical criminology in the early 1970s.
Julia was an amazing individual, and contributed not only to academic work, but to social justice issues as well.
Critical Criminology: An International Journal invites original submissions for a special issue, “Critical Issues in Rural Criminology,” guest edited by Joseph F. Donnermeyer, Walter DeKeseredy and Kerry Carrington. The issue will be published in November, 2014.
The goal of this special edition is to publish innovative scholarly pieces that explore interconnections between rural and critical criminology. This can include topics related to how crime and rurality are constructed and contested; arrests of and offending by the rural populace; corporate and state crime in the rural context; critiques of mainstream criminological theory and their application to rural crime issues; crimes associated with agriculture and food; environmental crime in the rural context; issues related to masculinities/femininities, lifestyles and “others” in rural societies; the rural dimensions of human trafficking; forms of economic and social change and their impacts on crime and fear of crime in rural communities; rural indigenous populations; rural policing and other criminal justice topics; substance use and related issues of production and trafficking in the rural context; victimisation of rural populations in general; violence against women; and other topics that can expand a critical discourse about rural crime. As well, articles about alternative and innovative forms of rural crime prevention – in the broadest sense of that phrase – based on a critical perspective, are encouraged.
