Dr Susan Batchelor

  • Senior Lecturer (Sociology)

Biography

Prior to joining the University of Glasgow in 2005, I was a Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Strathclyde and held a series of research posts at The Scottish Office, Brunel University, and the University of Glasgow.


Research interests

My research activity revolves around intersecting issues of gender, youth, culture and crime, with a particular focus on young women and violence. 

Between 2013 and 2015 I was co-PI on (Re)Imagining Youth, an ESRC-funded study of youth leisure in Glasgow and Hong Kong. This research explored young people’s narratives of connectivity and the local and global ties that arise out of their everyday routines - including a focus on new social media and its impact on identity, social inequalities and relationships. 

Since 2017 I have been involved in supporting the work of Girlhood Gang, a group of feminist social scientists interested in the experiences, identities and perspectives of young women and girls - led by Amanda Ptolomey and Hannah Walters.

Currently I am leading a major Scottish Government funded study of Repeat Violent Victimisation (RVV) in Scotland, with Caitlin Gormley and Marguerite Schinkel. This qualitative research, which will run from October 2019 to January 2021, explores the views and experiences of people with lived experience of RVV, particularly those living in deprived neighbourhoods. In doing so, the study builds on a recent evidence review undertaken by the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (Batchelor et al. 2019), which presented evidence of variations in local rates of offending and victimisation, with deprived communties suffering disproportionately high levels of violence. The experiences of multiply marginalised groups were highlighted as a priority for future research on repeat and routinised victimisation.

Other active interests include:

  • women, crime and criminal justice (esp. women who commit violent offences; women's imprisonment)
  • youth crime and youth justice (esp. working with girls and young women in the community; the Children's Hearing System in Scotland)
  • youth leisure and lifestyles (incl. teen sexuality, digital social media, and media representations of youth)
  • violence and social harm (incl. youth gangs, knife crime, domestic abuse, routine victimisation)
  • cultural criminology and the sociology of risk (esp. young women's risk-seeking behaviour)
  • critical and feminist criminology (incl. feminist methodology)
