hello administrators. This is the real Prof. Hall. Email me at Teesside University for verification if you wish. Apparently I am not allowed to delete the pages for myself and Prof. Winlow. We do not wish to be associated with the vandalism, rudeness etc. appearing on our pages and talk pages. Could you or someone else either delete the pages or kindly show me how to submit a request? Thank you in anticipation. --Prof Steve Hall (talk) 21:17, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Simon Winlow is a British sociologist and criminologist. He is currently Professor of Criminology in the Social Futures Institute, Teesside University, UK. Specialising in crime, violence, masculinity, consumer culture and social exclusion, he is an ethnographer and theorist said to produce "qualitative sociology at its best".[1] His early work focused on the fate of traditional masculine gender forms on the shifting cultural and socioeconomic terrain of late capitalism. Specifically, he charted the reworking of the cultural traits and skills of the traditional masculine 'warrior-producer', which include violence, in the new consumer-service economy which displaced the traditional industrial economy in Britain from the 1980s.[2]

In recent years,[when?] Winlow has moved into broader areas of research. He is now part of a new wave of criminological theorists intent on moving beyond the restrictive 'moral panic' and 'social constructionist' orthodoxies in order to construct a multi-disciplinary empirical and theoretical investigation of the complex causal conditions that underlie crime and harm, thus forging criminological theories fit for the 21st century.[3] His recent work with Prof. Steve Hall on the relationship between crime and consumer culture has been described in the academic press as 'an important landmark in criminology'[4] and in the UK national press as 'extraordinary'.[5]

After spells at Durham, Teesside and Buckingham College, Winlow joined the University of York in 2005.[6] With Dr. Rowland Atkinson, he organized the revived National Deviancy Conference at the University of York, UK, in July 2011.[7] He rejoined Teesside University as Professor of Criminology in 2012.
