Dr Baris Cayli Messina
Associate Professor of Criminology
I have sought to explore the origins and consequences of crime, conflict and violence. I am broadly interested in the social, political, and cultural issues in which crime, conflict, or violence plays a central role. My research program aims to demystify complicated local and global processes in order to foster positive changes in communities and to have a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals and societies. As a social and cultural critic, my research and approach to a range of issues incorporate strong critical perspectives, and I seek to challenge entrenched power hierarchies between communities, states, classes, cultures, sexes, races, and resources by exploring the disastrous consequences of injustice and inequality across time and space. This intellectual curiosity also prompted me to take a comparative and critical approach to formulating the research design for the subjects that I study.
I have recently founded Temple Studies in Criminalization, History, and Society book series which is published by Temple University Press. As a book series editor, my aim is to advance critical scholarship and stimulate intellectual discussion revolving around crime and society across time and space.
As a gay man, I advocate for LGBTQ+ academics and mentor early-career scholars both individually and through the ISA's LGBTQA Caucus. Additionally, I am currently working with other colleagues to build an organised way of mentoring and supporting early-career LGBTQ+ scholars more effectively in the UK, as well as serving as a positive role model for our community. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are a member of the LGBTQ+ academic community needing help or mentorship.View Profile
