Biography

Dr Karen Corteen is a Senior Lecturer in Criminal Justice. She is also the Induction co-ordinator and the Link Tutor for Criminal Justice and Law. Many years ago after completing my first degree at LJMU I left my post as a youth worker. I began working at LJMU and then I went on to teach in other universities in the North West of England. I returned to LJMU in August 2015 and I am currently teaching on the Criminal Justice programmes in the School of Law. I lead on three modules on the undergraduate programme and I contribute to the MA in Criminal Justice. The title of my current research project is 'Miniature Prisons in the Community: The Secretive World of Police Custody Suites'. My PhD was on school sex and relationship education, the sexual ordering of society and children's rights to a democratic sexualities education. I have published in the areas of victimology, critical criminology, hate crime, and sexuality. My research interests are victimology, zemiology and harms of the powerful including those resulting from ‘sports entertainment’. One of my recent publications is an edited collection entitled 'A Companion to Crime, Harm & Victimisation' (Policy Press, 2016). This is the second in a series of four. The first is entitled 'A Companion to Criminal Justice, Mental Health and Risk' (Taylor, Corteen, Morley, 2015, Policy Press). There are a further two Companion which have been published in 2017. I have written an article on looking at professional wrestling through a victimological lens for 'International Perspectives in Victimology'. Currently I am looking at this industry through the lens of state-corporate crime.I have contributed to Criminal Justice Matters. I have also co-edited a reader in criminology entitled 'Expanding the Criminological Imagination' in which I co-authored two chapters (2007) (Willan Publishing). I have contributed to a number of prestigious American 'Encyclopedia of Sociology' (2015); (2011) and (2007) (Blackwell) and my work has been published in various journals including 'Sexualities' and the 'Journal of Criminal Justice Education'. I supervise undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation students and I am currently supervising two PhD students.
