Robsoncrim.com is most pleased to welcome Lara Karaian to the collaborator team. At Robsoncrim we believe in open access study and commentary about topics that intersect the areas of criminal law, criminology and justice studies more broadly. Dr. Karaian further deepens our strengths in critical scholarship. Welcome!
Dr. Karaian’s interests are varied, however she is generally interested in examining the intersections between the body, sexuality, technology, representation, legal regulation, and popular culture. She has researched and written on topics such as: teenage sexting and child pornography; ‘revenge porn’; accidental incest and ‘technology facilitated’ incest; virtual rape; ‘self-exploitation’; queer pornography; risk management; (self)surveillance; pregnant men and anti-discrimination law; transgender human rights; and, third wave feminisms.She approaches these topics empirically and theoretically and employs a post/intersectional lens. Dr. Karaian is cross-appointed to the Department of Law and Legal Studies, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and the Pauline Jewett Institute of Women’s and Gender Studies at Carleton University. She is also a member of the Sexuality Studies Committee at Carleton and an adjunct faculty member in the department of Socio-Legal Studies at York University.
