Conferencing in November

November is always a busy month in terms of conference attendance. This year it has a decidedly criminological bent. I am presenting at both the American Society of Criminology (ASC) meeting in Washington, DC, and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology (ANZSOC) annual conference in Adelaide, South Australia. Having recently been elected as an Executive Counselor for the ASC Division on Critical Criminology, I expect I will have a few meetings, too. Here’s my schedule:

Wed, November 18, 5:00 to 6:20pm, Washington Hilton, Fairchild West, Terrace Level

Presenting “Teaching to Transform? Justice, Hope, and the Value of Establishing Tents in Universities” on the panel, Justice Matters: A Focus on Pedagogy and Research

Here, I am reflecting on RegNet’s interdisciplinary MPhil and PhD programs and how we have designed them in a way that instills values around research questions of justice while navigating the demands of contemporary research-intensive university environments.

Friday, November 20, 12:30 to 1:50pm, Washington Hilton, Columbia 12, Terrace Level

Author Meets Critics: Testing for Athlete Citizenship: Regulating Doping and Sex in Sport

I am looking forward to receiving feedback from and responding to my critics, Jennifer Musto (Wellesley College), Nancy Reichman (University of Denver), Ophir Sefiha (Western Carolina University), and Emily Troshynski (University of Nevada, Las Vegas).

Wednesday, November 26, 4:00 to 5:00pm, Flinders University, Room 2.1

Presenting “More than a Game: Protest, Securitization, and Sport Mega-Events” on the panel, Criminologies of Protest

This paper reflects on some of my ongoing research by looking at the the securitization of sport mega-events. It examines how citizens resist these practices by looking at different sites of protest with the aim of illuminating not only relationships between protest and policing, but also how broader public-private arrangements come to influence them.
