- Author BiographyProfessor Yvonne Jewkes joined the School of Applied Social Science at the University of Brighton in January 2016 as Research Professor in Criminology. Prior to that she was Professor of Criminology at the University of Leicester (2007-2015). Her main current research interest is the impact of prison architecture, design and technology on the lives of prisoners and prison staff. She has recently written on the theme of 'doing prison research differently' and about the role of emotion and auto-ethnography in prison research. She is also researching the potential role of computer-mediated technologies on the everyday lives and future prospects of prisoners; and the particular problems that face elderly inmates, from the poor design of prisons to end-of-life healthcare. A theme which has underpinned much of her previous work is that of self and identity: how masculinity is 'performed' in men's prisons; how lifers manage their identity through a disrupted lifecourse; how new communication technologies permit individuals to create, transform, play with, or steal identities and how researchers gain from being attuned to the emotional and auto-ethnographic aspects of their work She is also known for her work on media and crime and is the author of the bestselling Media and Crime (now in its third edition) and the forthcoming Media and Crime in the USA (co-authored with Travis Linnemann). Gayle Letherby, BA (Hons), PhD, AcSS is Professor Sociology and Director of the Institute of Health and Community at Plymouth University. She researches and writes in a variety of areas including reproductive and non/parental identity; working and learning in higher education; crime and deviance and travel mobilities. She is also interested in all things methodological, particularly feminist approaches, auto/biography and wider concerns relating to the politics of the research process and product.
