The Five ‘Troubling’ Developments in Criminology
- 5 Downloads
This chapter explores Garland’s five ‘troubling’ developments in criminology with particular emphasis on the expansion of criminology programs. Garland (2011) suggest that as criminology increasingly becomes a stand-alone ‘discipline’ (he rejects the claims of criminology as a discipline), it is increasingly separated from other disciplines and oriented towards vocational training and practical governmental objectives (both in terms of research and training). He sees particularly strong evidence of this emanating from the US. But to what extent is this true of other countries such as Australia? The first section introduces some selected literature on the development of criminology and scholarship on learning and teaching in criminology (SCOLATIC) and the efforts of the discipline to create learning and teaching ‘standards’. Following this, the chapter addresses Garlands concern about the directions of the institutional development of criminology.
