LLB Dual Honours Criminology and Law (Keele), LLM, MA and PhD (Nottingham)

Fabienne graduated from Keele with an LLB Dual Honours in Criminology and Law in 2000. She also holds both an LLM in International Law and an MA in Socio-Legal and Criminological Research Methods from the University of Nottingham. She was awarded a PhD in July 2013.

 

Fabienne returned to the School as a member of staff in January 2011. Before joining she taught at the Universities of Nottingham and Bristol.

Fabienne's research interest is penal governance in Germany with a focus on power and gendered constructions of imprisonment. In her thesis she analysed the personal prison stories of former Baader-Meinhof prisoners in the period 1970-1995 by framing the lived experiences and the meanings the former prisoners attach to isolation and resistance within power and gendered dimensions of prison life and penality. She is currently working on the dissemination of her thesis, in particular a contribution to the wider discussion on imprisonment and penality in Germany, with a focus on the governance of women and men prisoners who are constructed as dangerous. 

In 2007-8 she collaborated in a Europe-wide interdisciplinary study, partially funded by the European Commission AGIS Programme. The project involved a survey on the conditions of detention and living conditions of long-term prisoners conducted by partners in ten European Union countries. Fabienne completed the English part of the study alongside Professor Dirk van Zyl Smit.

Fabienne is happy to supervise postgraduate research students in the areas of Gender and socio-legal/criminological approaches to criminal justice and human rights. She is particularly interested in supervising postgraduate research in Gender and the sociology of imprisonment.
