Dr Ross McGarry

Senior Lecturer Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology


    Personal Statement

    My research interests are in the field of critical military studies working at the intersections of sociology, criminology, and ethnographic and visual methods. My research is critical of the experience of military institutionalisation and the presence of militarism within civic life and upon civilian landscapes. It also explores the subjugated knowledges of “war” and the “military” within criminological literature.
