Introduction: Co-production and Carceral Spatiality

  • Dominique MoranEmail author

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Prisons and Penology book series (PSIPP)


This book is a hybrid creature. Edited by two human geographers, and published within a Criminology book series, it draws together essays by geographers, some (but not all) of whom are carceral geographers, and criminologists, as well as new collaborations between criminology and geography. Each author, and each set of collaborating authors, has worked somewhat outside of their comfort zone, tackling new literatures, thinking of their research from new perspectives, and engaging in new conversations.
