Abstract

Crime, its practice and its repression arouse great attention and curiosity in our days. Reported and investigated by the media, literature or cinema, among others, crime is currently a constant presence in our daily life. In the field of History, particularly in Social History, crime has established itself as a relevant topic of study, especially since the second half of the 20th century and, since then, several lines of research have been pursued and explored. This issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal is looking for contributions that reflect on Crime and Society in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Argument

The call for articles for the Thematic Dossier “Crime and Society: historical dynamics in contemporary times” is open until December 31, 2023.

Crime, its practice and its repression arouse great attention and curiosity in our days. Reported and investigated by the media, literature or cinema, among others, crime is currently a constant presence in our daily life. Furthermore, it has also been the object of reflection and analysis by several areas of knowledge, such as Law, Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology and Medicine, among many others.

In the field of History, particularly in Social History, crime has established itself as a relevant topic of study, especially since the second half of the 20th century and, since then, several lines of research have been pursued and explored. Crime asserts itself as a historically determined category, since each era and each social reality develop their own conceptions of what they consider and classify as crime, according to their values but also to the predominant interests, the notions of justice and collective and individual security. The history of crime for the 19th and 20th centuries also shows that this is also a history of the affirmation of the authority and power of the State and its normative foundations.

This issue of Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal is looking for contributions that reflect on Crime and Society in the 19th and 20th centuries, namely on topics such as:

  1. Characterization and typification of crime
  2. Crime prevention and repression
  3. Representations of crime
  4. Global dynamics of crime
