|Robert Werth >||>|
Robert Werth is Senior Lecturer of sociology at Rice University. His research focuses on (a) punishment, (b) the ways in which penal subjects are imagined, evaluated and represented, and (c) the ways in which penal practices impact conceptions of personhood and social inclusion. His current research project entails two overlapping foci. First, it ethnographically explores how individuals on parole navigate state efforts to regulate their conduct, desires and subjectivities. Second, it examines how parole personnel understand agency missions (e.g., to promote ‘offender change’), engage with agency mandates (e.g., to utilize actuarial risk tools), and deploy technical, moral and affective knowledges in supervising individuals. His work has been published in academic journals, including Social & Legal Studies, Punishment & Society, Theoretical Criminology, Social Justice, and the British Journal of Criminology.
