Dr Kate Herrity
Research Fellow, Graduate tutor

My main areas of interest are punishment, sensory criminology, sound, music and emotion and prison and working at the edges of fields and disciplines, which criminology is uniquely placed to do. I attend to the implications of foregrounding the sensory for our understanding of how we know, and curate a blog www.sensorycriminology to accompany a co-edited volume exploring these ideas in spaces of punishment and social control. The monograph of my PhD, exploring the significance of sound in the social world of a local men’s prison is just out. I hope to extend research to look at sound as a conduit for emotion amongst different incarcerated populations and, further afield, interrogate how legacies of colonialism live on in carceral practices rooted in the imposition of cultures of control in former colonial and commonwealth territories.
