Call for Papers: Special Issue of the International Criminal Justice Review


A call for papers has been released for the International Criminal Justice Review, for a special issue entitled “Crimes against Culture: Theft, Destruction, Security, and Protection of Heritage”. Submissions will be peer-reviewed, must not exceed 30 pages excluding references, and include both a 200 word abstract and short author biography. The description of the issue includes the following:

In this issue we hope to feature cutting-edge research into the intersections between criminology and the disciplines traditionally associated with the preservation of cultural objects and sites, namely archaeology, heritage, and museums studies. Topics could include: looting, trafficking, and illicit sale of antiquities or other cultural objects; security and protection of cultural objects and sites during and beyond conflict and natural disaster; cultural protection policy success, failure, or critiques; forgery and fraud in the art and antiquities market; white collar crime, crimes of the powerful, and state crime as they relate to cultural objects and sites; and, harm related to heritage crime. We especially welcome papers that push the boundaries of theoretical or methodological research in this field, that draw on multidisciplinary resources and discourses, or that present research into underrepresented geographical areas or new conceptions of heritage crime.

Submissions should be sent via email to . To read the full call for papers click here.
