For this episode, we decided to switch things up and sit down with not one but two scholars: Alexander McClelland of Carleton University's Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice, and Alex Luscombe from the University of Toronto's Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies. Alexander and Alex stopped by to talk at length about their Policing the Pandemic Mapping Project, which tracks expansions of police power and unequal enforcement in response to COVID-19. Subscribe to Criminologia for more interviews with scholars from the field!
