Une sociologie des 'taulards' : la convict criminology

Abstract : Convict Criminology has developed in the United States in the last ten years. There is something special about this academic current: its founding members have themselves experienced imprisonment; they are “ex-cons”. Starting by reversing the stigmatism, the convict criminologists are endeavouring to shake up intellectual and institutional routines by producing alternative analyses of the prison system and, more broadly, the sociology of norms and deviations. This article presents the essential characteristics and aims of this movement.
