Crime, Deviance and Popular Culture

International and Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Dimitris Akrivos (Redaktør) ; Alexandros K. Antoniou (Redaktør)

«“Akrivos and Antoniou’s edited volume adopts a multidisciplinary approach that offers a snapshot of the dynamic, ever-evolving landscape of popular media and representations of deviance and crime in the twenty-first century. The collection of media chosen by the book’s contributors is admirably broad.” (Ashley Pearson, Ksenia Gałuskina and Thomas Giddens, International Journal for the Semiotics of Law, Vol. 32 (2), June, 2019)»

This book explores the links between crime, deviance and popular culture in our highly-mediatised era, offering an insight into the cultural processes through which particular practices acquire a criminal or deviant status, and come to be seen as social problems. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, the edited collection brings together international scholars across various areas of specialisation to provide an up-to-date analysis of some important and topical issues in 21st-century popular culture. The chapters look at different aspects of popular culture, including fictional detective narratives and the true crime genre, popular media constructions of sexual deviance and Islamophobia, sports, graffiti and outlaw biker subcultures. The authors examine a wide range of relevant case studies through a number of crime and deviance-related theories. Crime, Deviance and Popular Culture will be of importance to scholars and students across several disciplines, including criminology, sociology of deviance, social anthropology, media studies, cultural studies, television studies and linguistics.
