Research at the Chair of Criminology: Security and Resilience explores the contemporary moment as shaped by radical uncertainty, an authoritarian shift and an increasing exhaustion of living resources, but also by inventiveness and new forms of solidarity. Projects revolve around urban anti-terrorism strategies, far-right mobilisations, as well as apocalyptic reasoning and resilient practices in the face of climate change and a global pandemic. Tracing how publics and collectivities are constantly shaped anew in these requires spatial, affective, and narrative sensitivities.
Christine Hentschel is co-chair in three research projects, all of which contribute to the University’s Profile Initiative Violence and Security Research.
