Representing Criminalisation

How can we write gripping crime fiction that is socially aware of the realities of criminalisation and the complexities of the criminal justice system?

Gala Vanting, Nayuka Gorrie and Queenie Bon Bon give us a chance to think critically about cultural and legal ideas of ‘the criminal’ and ‘the victim’. They discuss the effects of criminalisation and over-policing on politicised communities, and the importance of unpacking one’s own ideas about deviance, investigation, punishment and criminality as a writer of crime.
