Men in Prison: Con-viviality, Race and Culture

Earle, Rod (2014). Men in Prison: Con-viviality, Race and Culture. PhD thesis The Open University.



Introduction: The Old Days, The New Times: A personal journey. The body of work I present for a PhD by Publication is comprised of twelve carefully chosen papers. Below, in Part 1, I summarise each paper’s development and content seeking to show how they combine to form a coherent narrative that offers a substantial and original contribution to criminological knowledge. Part 2 comprises the published papers in the order they are listed in the Table of Contents above. In Part 3 I briefly conclude and reflect on the field of knowledge to which these papers are a contribution, namely criminology and studies of prison with an emphasis on gender, ethnicity and reflexivity in the research process.
