Duration: 1:02:45 | Added: 19 Feb 2019
Fergus McNeill introduces the main arguments from his recent book explaining the meanings of 'mass supervision’ and outlining its scale and social distribution, the processes by which it has been legitimated and its significance as a penal phenomenon.

However, the main focus of this seminar will be on the lived experience of supervision, as revealed in conventional ethnographies and in his own recent work using creative methods to explore and represent what it is and how it feels to be supervised. In conclusion, Fergus will explore how mass supervision might be best resisted and restrained. Fergus McNeill is a Professor of Criminology and Social Work at the University of Glasgow.
