Curriculum Vitae

Anita Kalunta-Crumpton received a PhD from Brunel University, West London, United Kingdom. She taught for more than ten years at a number of universities in England before joining Texas Southern University in 2008 as Associate Professor of Administration of Justice.. Her research studies have found home in a wide range of reputable journals including the British Journal of Criminology; Social Justice; International Journal of the Sociology of Law; and International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology. She is the author of Race and Drug Trials: The Social Construction of Guilt and Innocence (1999), Drugs, Victims and Race: The Politics of Drug Control (2006), and editor (with Biko Agozino) of Pan-African Issues in Crime and Justice (2004).

Her most recent publications include two edited collections: Race, Crime and Criminal Justice: International Perspectives, and Race, Ethnicity, Crime and Criminal Justice in the Americas. Both books, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2010 and 2012 respectively, take the controversial and politically-sensitive race–criminal justice debate to an international level and beyond the West to encompass untapped perspectives from English and non-English-speaking societies. Drawing on an international line-up of scholars, the 2010 collection represents perspectives from thirteen countries across four continents. The 2012 book covers Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States – thereby extending the traditional focus of comparative race and criminal justice research on North America to four regions of the Americas.

As she continues to extend the parameters of comparative criminological and sociological concerns beyond the West, Anita Kalunta-Crumpton is also devoting a significant portion of her research efforts to studying violence against women and in particular, immigrant women and women from marginalized communities. She is currently working on a small-scale project on intimate partner violence in the immigrant Nigerian community under the sponsorship of the feminist review|trust
