Welcome! Here you will find information regarding the critical criminology conference held at Eastern Michigan University, located on the unceded territory of the Huron Potawatomi peoples. This year's conference has two themes: 1) a focus on marginalized identities often overlooked or undervalued in the field; and 2) discussions on how to implement the changes so often called for by critical criminologists. We'll talk about research areas that offer important areas of engagement for critical criminologists and the changes within the field, academia, and society at large for which we want to argue. We'll also discuss how to achieve those changes, including strategies and techniques for achieving social justice, discussions on critical methodologies and pedagogy, and our long-term goals as a field. The conference will feature:

  • Two keynote speakers;
  • Workshops during the conference and a post-conference workshop organized by notable experts; 
  • An undergraduate and graduate student poster session; and
  • Research panels on the conference themes and beyond!

Registration for panels, individual paper submissions, and the poster session opens November 1. We look forward to seeing everyone in April. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team.

In order to keep the conference cost as low as possible for attendees, and in lieu of a registration fee, we are crowdfunding the cost of putting the conference together.
