Missed Opportunities: Forgotten Spaces of Crime and Deviance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research on spaces of crime and crime mapping overwhelms contemporary criminology. The literature on criminal environments and spaces are central in the theoretic development of the discipline, most notably with routine activities (Cohen and Felson 1979), target hardening (see Brantingham and Brantingham 1981) and hotspot theory (Sherman et. al 1989, Sherman 1995). Today, crime mapping and the use of digital cartography marginalizes different approaches to investigating spaces of crime and deviance, while eclipsing other theoretic considerations. These approaches are often stagnant and lifeless, neglecting the context of human experiences of and responses to space. Further, the discipline is increasingly self-referential and theoretically isolated in its investigations. Drawing on abstract submissions for a British symposium, this presentation shows how other disciplines are approaching the mapping of dangerous spaces to illustrate how interdisciplinary work on space can inform criminology. The glaring absence of an interdisciplinary presence in crime mapping literature may be attributed to recent calls for a ‘crime science’ approach to research (Clarke 2004). What this misses, however, is the opportunity to write more broadly-informed theory in our constructions and representations of criminal and deviant spaces.
