about

This text argues for the usefulness of fictional realities for criminological theorizing and analysis. It illustrates that a creative and critical social scientific practice requires craft norms rather than commercial norms that threaten to completely colonize higher education.
JON FRAULEY is Assistant Professor of Criminology at the University of Ottawa, Canada.
