Full bibliography

Olga Petintseva is a criminologist. She has previously worked for the Civic Integration. Her research interest is located at the intersection of critical criminology, migration studies and linguistics. Olga’s doctoral dissertation focused on the ‘new’ migration – youth justice nexus, approached through a discursive lens. Her research attention goes to how migration impacts or becomes centred out in ‘domestic’ institutions, which are not structurally accustomed to mobility and diversity (e.g. criminal justice administration). Olga’s research speaks to debates about interactions and expectations in institutional contexts and common-sensualised discriminatory or otherwise harmful practices therein. Her goal is to better understand how definitions of ‘deviancy,’ ‘normality,’ ‘otherness,’ are mediated through language and cultural norms. Olga is involved in scholarly networks and courses concerning (qualitative) research and methods, theoretical, critical, cultural and narrative criminology
