Eamonn Carrabine joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex in 1998 and has published broadly in criminology and sociology. He currently serves as an editor on the British Journal of Criminology, and is an international advisory editor on Theoretical Criminology. From 2015, Michele Brown (University of Tennessee) and Eamonn have been editing Crime, Media, Culture. He has been an external examiner for the degree programmes at Goldsmiths College, University of London (Sociology), Roehampton University (Criminology) and the University of Salford (Criminology), while he is currently the external examiner for the MA in Criminology at the University of Nottingham. He was also a member of HEFCE’s Sociology sub-panel that assessed the quality of research for the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. Along with Chris Greer (City), Yvonne Jewkes (Leicester) and Tony Kearon (Keele), he was awarded funding from the ESRC [ES/J022381/1] for a Seminar Series led by Ronnie Lippens (Keele), to explore ‘Visual criminology: crime, criminal justice and the image’, involving international speakers from the US, Canada and Australia. The seminars ran from 2013-14, and one event was held here at Essex in Wivenhoe House. More recently Eamonn has also been awarded a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship to research his project ‘The Iconography of Punishment: From Renaissance to Modernity’, which will run for three years and began in 2015. He was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in 2016.
