Dr Lisa White

School of Justice Studies

Lisa joined LJMU in 2021 as a Senior Lecturer in Criminology, specialising in the study of state crime, harm and human rights.
Her current research is concerned with deaths in detention and custody, whilst previous work has explored the motivation, significance and consequences of narrating state torture in relation to N.Ireland. She is particularly interested in the lived impact of official discourse around state violence and how this is experienced by the most marginalised.

Lisa's previous teaching experience includes Modules centred around crimes of the powerful, human rights abuses, atrocity studies and critical engagement with criminological theories. She is interested in working with prospective PhD students who would like to discover more about these areas of the social world.
