ASC Division of Convict Criminology (DCC)
The ASC Division of Convict Criminology (Current Chair: Grant Tietjen) held its first session at the American Society of Criminology (ASC) in 1997, and members began writing scholarly books and submitting articles for peer review in scholarly journals. In 2001, Stephen C. Richards and Jeffrey Ian Ross wrote one of the initial definitive articles of CC, Introducing the School of Convict Criminology, which announced our presence and perspective to the academic world. Shortly thereafter, Ross and Richards published the first book, Convict Criminology (2003), which compiled the writings of several of the early members and contributors within the CC group. Multiple, well-received sessions at ASC’s annual meetings and ongoing publications in reputable peer-reviewed journals granted CC further legitimacy. At the same time, formerly incarcerated individuals, identifying themselves with CC, were becoming undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, and professors in criminology, criminal justice, and sociology departments all over the world.
