In her public lecture Prof. Robin Robinson will speak on the feminist and psychoanalytic approach to crime, criminal justice and criminology. The basis of her presentation is an article published in the Routledge Handbook of Critical Criminology. (‘Since I couldn’t get out of my own skin’: What would a feminist, psychoanalytic perspective of crime and justice look like?)
Robin A. Robinson is Professor of Sociology and Coordinator of the Community Engaged Research Initiative at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. With the PhD in Social Policy from Brandeis University and the PsyD in Clinical Psychology from George Washington University, she combines contemporary psychoanalytic theory and critical and feminist criminologies in the study of trauma, criminality, and social control of women and girls. She is currently a Fulbright Research Scholar, National Institute of Criminology of Hungary, and Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow, Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research. She has held the Simon Visiting Professorship at the University of Manchester School of Law; Visiting Scholar at the University of Cambridge, Institute of Criminology; Visiting Scholar at the University of Uppsala in Sweden; and the Mary Lily Research Award at Duke University, Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture. The recipient of many grants and awards, much of her social policy research engages community and government partners and NGOs across all levels of partnership, from the most local to the international. Other work includes a long-term psycho-legal, historical investigation into 18th Century law and penal practices that subjected thousands of British women convicts to servitude and childbearing in pre-Revolutionary British-American colonies.
