Abstract

This paper merges critical White studies with the sociological field of criminology as a means to

progress understanding of criminal behavior, justice, and social control. Up to this point,

criminology has largely neglected the significance of whiteness within its boundaries of the study.

Thankfully, a strong foundation of research and theoretical statements has been completed in

the interdisciplinary field of critical White studies. The formation of criminal law can be more

clearly understood through the inclusion of frameworks offered by critical White studies.

Additionally, nuanced explanations of criminal behavior and hate crime among Whites can be

attained through this perspective.

Introduction

In his 2009 presidential address for the Society for the Study of Social Problems, a criminologist

Steven Barkan called social science to reclaim the study of racial and ethnic inequality through

new innovations. Heeding this call, the current paper proposes that criminologists engage in a

critical interrogation of whiteness as an explicit effort to explain criminal behavior and social

control. The purpose here is to develop theoretical perspectives with a clear recognition of how

White identities and whiteness shape and are shaped by perceptions of justice, crime, and

social control – criminology's landscapes of research, policy development, and activism. Like

many other scholars and activists have clearly stated, Barkan (2010: 3) calls for social science

to recognize that “racial and ethnic inequality is, after all, a white problem.”
