Between Edges and Margins. Innovative methods in the study of deviance

Given the particular sensitivities of much research on deviance and social control (accessing hidden populations, researching sensitive topics and transgressive practices, etc.), methodological discussions have been ongoing in this thematic field since its inception. In recent decades, developments in criminology, anthropology, sociology, political sciences, development studies, media studies, and other disciplines have instigated the use of a wide array of innovative methods. Critical, reflexive and original work has been done using ethnography, visual, sensory, participatory and online methods – to name but a few.

Ghent University, the University of Kent, Utrecht University, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of Porto, VU Amsterdam and the ESC Working Group on Qualitative Methodologies and Epistemologies are pleased to invite you to the newly established joint conference on innovative methods in the study of deviance titled ‘Between Edges and Margins’.
