Dr Craig Webber is Associate Professor in Criminology within Sociology at the University of Southampton.

Dr Craig Webber is Associate Professor of Criminology. I joined Southampton in 1999 and have taken the main role in creating one of the first British Psychological Society accredited Criminology and Psychology joint honours degrees in a Russell group University. This has developed into one of the highest recruiting programmes in the department. I have also been central to building the links between Criminology and Web Science, an exciting development that spans the whole University to develop research and teaching at the interface of web technology and social issues.






Research interests

My approach to criminology is to take an integrative approach to research, drawing on as many different disciplines and research techniques as necessary to provide the most robust analysis. This involves working across disciplines and building research teams that can combine often diverse approaches and techniques. My research interests range from Criminological Theory, especially the history of its development; Youth and Crime, utilising ethnographic and qualitative methods; Psychology and Crime, especially in the application of Social Identity and Self-Categorisation theories to crime; Web Science, working at a transdisciplinary level to combine different approaches to understand the nature of the social and technological interactions as they pertain to deviancy and crime on the web.
