Crime, Media, Culture is a fully peer reviewed, international journal providing the primary vehicle for exchange between scholars who are working at the intersections of criminological and cultural inquiry. It promotes a broad cross-disciplinary understanding of the relationship between crime, criminal justice, media and culture.

The crime/media/culture nexus speaks to many whose work is embedded in theories of social relations and social change, and therefore maintains high relevance across the full spectrum of social sciences and humanities. Crime, Media, Culture provides a unique and much needed forum for serious debate underpinned by empirically novel and/or theoretically rigorous research.

"Somewhere between criminology and cultural studies in an area of excitement. It is here where the cultural shift is most evident and where a journal like Crime, Media, Culture can provide just the right lens at the right time" Jock Young, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York, USA and University of Canterbury, UK

"Crime, Media, Culture acknowledges what so many scholars have long recognized, namely the critical importance of media and cultural representations in shaping popular stereotypes of crime and justice, and thus of official policies. All the better the journal's international nature promises a long overdue integration of existing scholarship in North America, Europe and the Asia/Pacific region. I am delighted to be associated with this project" Philip Jenkins, Pennsylvania State University, USA
