Abstract

This paper addresses the question of how one might come to grips with contemporary penality from an interdisciplinary perspective (as opposed to from two, or more, disciplinary perspectives). It begins by laying out the terms of the interdisciplinary conversation about penality, and ends by outlining an interdisciplinary research program: a critical analysis of penal power.

Keywords: criminal law, criminal procedure, penal law, penality, interdisciplinary, critical analysis
