Pervasive punishment – Making Sense of Mass Supervision
Time:15:00 - 17:00
Venue:Faculty of Law, Njalsgade, 76, 2300 Copenhagen S - Room 6B-4-04 (Fourth floor)
Please join us for an interesting presentation and dialogue with leading scholar and expert on criminal justice and punishment, Fergus McNeill, on his newly published book, Pervasive Punishment.
Despite its dramatic proliferation and diversification in recent decades, supervisory forms of punishment in the community (like probation, parole and unpaid work) have been largely invisible in scholarly and public discussion of criminal justice and its development in late-modern societies. Pervasive Punishment insists that we remedy this neglect and exemplifies how we can do so. Drawing on thirty years of personal, practice and research experiences, it offers a compelling and rich account of the scale and social distribution of mass supervision, of the processes by which it has been legitimated, and of how it is experienced by those subject to it.
