Yvonne Jewkes is Professor of Criminology at the University of Leicester, UK.nbsp;Her research interests lie in two broad areas. The first is the intersections between crime, media and culture and the role of popular media discourses as sites of social inclusion/ exclusion. Her other main area of expertise is prisons and the sociology of imprisonment, especially prison design and its influence on the lives of prisoners and staff; and prison culture, including social networks, constructions of masculine identities and flows of power in prisons. She has published extensively in both areas, and will shortly publish the third edition of Media and Crime (Sage), Media and Crime in the US (co-authored with Travis Linnemann, Sage) and The Handbook on Prisons , second edition (with Jamie Bennett and Ben Crewe, Routledge).nbsp;nbsp; Yvonne was Founding Editor (with Chris Greer and Jeff Ferrell) of Crime, Media, Culture: An International Journal and has guest edited (with Ben Crewe) a special issue of Punishment & Society on 'The Pains of Imprisonment Revisited', December 2011, 13(5); and a special issue of Qualitative Inquiry on 'Doing prison research differently', April 2014, 20(4).nbsp; Yvonne is currently conducting a three-year ESRC funded study of prison architecture, design and technology (with Dominique Moran) and is an Honorary Fellow in Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. nbsp; nbsp;
