"Counter-/Narratives of Punishment and Criminal Justice" International Symposium June 2018.

"Conflicting Narratives of Crime and Punishment". Edited by Martina Althoff, Bernd Dollinger & Holger Schmidt (Palgrave Macmillan 2020).

This book illustrates the importance of conflicting narratives in understanding and dealing with crime, based on a variety of cutting-edge research. Offenders tell stories about crime and punishment, as do policemen, judges and defence lawyers, but so do politicians and the media. Each tells them very differently and only some stories are believed, while others are rejected as implausible leading to conflict. This book explores how these conflicts are carried out and what relationships exist between (often unquestioned) master narratives and (sometimes loud, sometimes silent) counter-narratives. These are issues of central importance for criminology which have thus far received little attention.

"Crimmigration. On the merger of crime control and migration control" International working group meeting, Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF), University of Bielefeld. March 2020 Postponed to 2021
