The Division of Critical Criminology began a mentoring program a few years ago. While this program was not continued, the initial list of volunteer mentors is provided below. The Division no longer updates this page, so much information is dated, but individual's listed below are likely to welcome communications from those interested in learning about critical criminology.
This mentoring network is intended to provide students, activists, and faculty interested in critical criminology with connections to critical criminologists in order to help support critical research, teaching, service, and activism endeavors. Our process is relatively simple. The following Division members have agreed to serve as mentors and can be contacted directly. Due to problems with e-mail harvesters (spammers) the links are not active. Please cut-and-paste the address of the individual you would like to contact, replacing " at " with @.
This is a great list of scholars and we hope you will take advantage of their generosity. Each volunteer has listed a few area of expertise. You are also encouraged to use Google, or the search tool on the critcrim.org site, to learn more about these scholars. Of course, you can also learn about these mentors through a review of scholarly literature.
