Our Past Events

We invite you to participate in the Decolonizing Criminology Symposium, which seeks to reckon with the legacy and impact of colonial thought on criminology discourse, crime, and punishment.

It also offers an opportunity to deepen our understanding of how colonial legacies continue to shape criminology discourse and practice and to collaborate on ways to decolonize this field.

 The symposium will occur at John Jay College, room 9.64NB, on Thursday, April 20th, from 9 am to 6 pm and will feature presentations, workshops, and panel discussions from distinguished scholars. 

The event will include a keynote address from Dr. Viviane Saleh-Hanna, UMass Dartmouth, Dr. Onwubiko Agozino, Virginia Tech, and Dr. Nigel South, University of Essex. 

Participants will be able to engage in productive discussions and learn from experts in the field. The symposium is open to everyone interested, including academics, practitioners, students, and community members.

Pre-registration is free and can be done here or by emailing rbahati@jjay.cuny.edu

We hope you can join us for a day of thought-provoking discussions and engaging presentations.

Dissident Practices: Brazilian Women Artists, 1960s-2020s, explores how artists responded to social change. Although many of them in the 1960s and 1970s disavowed the term feminism, they still employed feminist strategies.
