This seminar is part of the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice seminar series.
We welcomes guest speakers Thomas Grund (University College Dublin) and Margareta Hydén (Linköping University, Sweden and Visiting Professor, The University of Manchester).
One neglected aspect in studies of crime concerns the inclusion of victims in the context of their social network and how the interplay of structure, meaning and power in the networks transforms the process of crime and the victim’s identity. We argue that social networks should be viewed as configurations of social relationships interwoven with meaning that can trap or free victims.
Combining narrative and social network analysis, we elaborate on the story of a young Swedish female. She got trapped in an abusive context and ultimately escaped from it.
