Justin Turner

贾斯廷·特纳博士
Justin Turner earned his Ph.D. in Criminology from Old Dominion University. He has taught a variety of courses covering the expanse of the criminal justice system, including Introduction to a Sociological Perspective on Criminology, Culture of Punishment, Juvenile Justice, Research Methods, Criminological Theory, and Sociology of Punishment. At Bellarmine he is developing new courses on the history and expansion of the modern police force, taking a critical approach to how these developments have impacted society across gendered, racialized, classed, and abled lines. As for research, it is the complex interplay between state power, violence and everyday life that draws Justin’s attention, particularly of how these forces tend to collide under the auspices of criminal justice. Intentionally far-reaching, his research agenda includes research on the cultural weight the death of a police officer is given when developing US criminal justice policy, the larger economic force of neoliberalism and how it rationalizes problematic and predatory ways to handle youth in confinement, and a broad focus on how the technologies and equipment now in the possession of the police have expanded the nature of “police control” high and wide. Beyond academia, Justin enjoys reading and spending time with his family.
