Dear all,

*Apologies for cross-posting*

Please see below a call for contributions for an edited collection on older offenders of violence and abuse. The deadline to submit (short) chapter proposals is 31st March 2020. Please get in touch with any queries and feel free to share this call widely

Call for book chapters for an edited book:
Not your usual suspects: Older Offenders of Violence and Abuse (working title)

Editor: Hannah Bows

This edited book proposal will be submitted for consideration to Emerald for the ‘Feminist Developments in Violence and Abuse’ book series (series editors Dr Hannah Bows and Professor Nicole Westmarland, Durham University). The proposed book will focus on violence and abuse perpetrated by ‘older’ offenders, examining the intersections of gender, crime and age. Whilst there has been an increase in research and policy attention towards abuse of older people (typically termed elder abuse) over the last three decades, there remains a paucity of research examining offending in later life. Furthermore, although there is some recognition of older offenders, the existing research and policy focus has been primarily on those who are sentenced in later life for crimes they committed as younger adults (so called historic crimes). Less attention has been paid to those who commit offences (as long-term, repeat or first-time offenders) in later life, which will be the focus of this collection. 

As the population continues to rapidly age, the long-held assumption that age is a protective factor against both offending and victimisation is being challenged. The increase in older people entering the criminal justice system has thrown into sharp focus how unprepared our policies and practices are for dealing with this cohort. Similarly, the majority of criminological, victimological and feminist understandings of victimisation and offending have been built on the empirical and theoretical evidence relating to young(er) people. It remains unclear to what extent this knowledge can be applied to older offenders/offending. This book aims to address the gaps in empirical and theoretical evidence. It will be the first to draw together research on different forms of violence and abuse perpetrated by older people (with a focus on offending that occurs over the age of 60) offering important contributions to existing criminological, gerontological, feminist and elder abuse fields. 

Authors are invited to submit a book chapter proposal on any topic related to violent and/or abusive offending by older adults. Submissions from authors researching outside of the UK are particularly encouraged. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

1.	Theoretical and conceptual frameworks for understanding later life offending/offending in old age.
2.	Specific forms of offending, e.g. violence against women, interpersonal violence, violence linked to organised crime, sexual offending (against adults and/or children), familial abuse, violence and abuse of animals, violence in public/private spaces, violence in the night-time economy etc.
3.	Patterns of offending in later life.
4.	Understanding onset of offending in later life
o	Comparisons between different categories of offending or typologies of offenders.
5.	The importance of examining age and other characteristics in understanding later-life offending.
6.	Homicide/murder/suicide-murder by older adults.
7.	Policy and practice responses to late life offending. 
8.	Criminal justice responses (and/or outcomes) to older offenders of violence/abuse (e.g. investigation, sentencing, decision making, risk assessment and management).
9.	Desistance and rehabilitation. 

Submission deadline (abstract 250-300 words outlining topic and proposed chapter structure and 100-150 word bio) – 31st March 2020.

Please send proposed chapter abstracts to Dr Hannah Bows (editor), Assistant Professor in Criminal Law at Durham Law School (Durham University, UK) by email ([log in to unmask]). Informal inquiries can also be made using these contact details. It is anticipated that complete first drafts of chapters accepted for the collection will be due for submission March 2021. Final chapters will be approximately 6,000 words.
