Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology

Call for Abstracts Open

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the 2022 Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology Conference, held in Darwin, 28 – 30 November 2022. 

“Transforming Criminology for the 2020’s and beyond” 

Submissions are invited for the following presentation types, and the organising committee strongly encourages participants to propose any of the following options that encourage audience participation and group discussion. This year we hope that individual paper presentations will be minimised in favour of integrated group presentations such as panel discussions, roundtables, and lightning Talks. If you have an individual paper presentation, why not get together with colleagues working in the same area and submit a panel or roundtable?.

  • Roundtable discussions 
  • Panel sessions
  • Paper presentations 
  • Lightning talks 
  • Author meets critics 
  • Poster presentations 

We strongly encourage submissions that address the conference themes below, focusing on how criminology can transform itself by responding in the stated ways. Of course, you (and your colleagues together) can propose other criminological topics if you would like.

Criminology’s response to:

  • Crimes affecting First Nations peoples
  • Cybercrime
  • Victim support from communities
  • International political crises
  • Teaching of criminology
  • Pandemics
  • Environmental crises
  • Sexual violence

You can also propose participating in presentations organised by one of ANZSOC’s 13 Thematic Groups.

The Call for Abstracts will close on 5 August 2022
