Actor-network Theory and Crime Studies
Explorations in Science and TechnologyeBook - 2014
Developed by Bruno Latour and his collaborators, actor-network theory (ANT) offers crimes studies a worthy intellectual challenge. It requires us to take the performativity turn, consider the role of objects in our analysis and conceptualize all actants (human and non-human) as relational beings. Thus power is not the property of one party, but rather it is an effect of the relationships among actants. Students, academics and policy-makers will benefit from reading this collection in order to explore criminology-related topics in a different way.
