Amanda Nelund is interested in bringing together feminist and other critical criminologies in order to explore possibilities for better criminal and social justice. She is particularly interested in imagining different ways to think about and practice justice. Dr. Nelund's interest in rethinking justice focuses on two areas. First of all, in the context of responding to criminalized women, she is currently working on a book manuscript that analyzes alternative justice programs for criminalized women. Secondly, regarding alternative approaches to sexual violence, she is interested in how we think about/respond to sexual violence on university campuses.
Available to supervise senior students' independent study.
