Embodying Punishment

Emotions, Identities, and Lived Experiences in Women's Prisons

Anastasia Chamberlen

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • A unique theoretical and empirical examination into women's embodied experience of imprisonment in England.
  • Responds to an invitation made in the field of prisons research calling for a more affective sociology of imprisonment.
  • Offers insights from psychology, philosophy, history, medical sociology and gender studies, which add to the criminological scholarship around its themes
  • Provides a first-hand engagement with notoriously difficult theorists, whose work is relevant but relatively under-researched in this area
  • Discusses difficult themes, theories and lived experiences in an approachable and empathetic manner, thus allowing wider engagement with its content
  • Seriously engages with and challenges the legitimacy of women's imprisonment in an original way, by bringing attention to its longstanding effects
  • Discusses often unobserved aspects of lived experiences in prison, which provide new insights to prison sociology and criminology
