    Reimagining Black Art and Criminology

    If you would like to contact Martin Glynn for more information about his new book please email Martin.Glynn@bcu.ac.uk.

    It is time to disrupt current criminological discourses which still exclude the perspectives of black scholars.

    Through the lens of black art, Martin Glynn explores the relevance black artistic contributions have for understanding crime and justice. Through art forms including black crime fiction, black theatre and black music, this book brings much needed attention to marginalized perspectives within mainstream criminology.

    Refining academic and professional understandings of race, racialization and intersectional aspects of crime, this text provides a platform for the contributions to criminology which are currently rendered invisible.

    Martin Glynn is a lecturer in Criminology at Birmingham City University and a Winston Churchill Fellow with over 35 years’ experience of working in criminal justice, public health, and educational settings. Martin is also the creator of ‘data verbalization’, a performative method for the dissemination of qualitative research.
