Actor-network Theory And Crime Studies: Explorations In Science And Technology

Developed by Bruno Latour and his collaborators, actor-network theory (ANT) offers crimes studies a worthy intellectual challenge. It requires us to take the performativity turn, consider the role of objects in our analysis and conceptualize all actants (human and non-human) as relational beings. Thus power is not the property of one party, but rather it is an effect of the relationships among actants. This innovative collection provides a series of empirical and theoretical contributions that shows:- The importance of conceptualizing and analyzing technologies as crucial actants in crime andcrime control.- The many facets of ANT: its various uses, its theoretical blending with other approaches, itsmethodological implications for the field.- The fruitfulness of ANT for studying technologies and crime studies: its potential and limitations for understanding the world and revamping crime studies research goals.Students, academics and policy-makers will benefit from reading this collection in order to explore criminology-related topics in a different way.
