Dr. Lambros Fatsis is Lecturer in Sociology and Criminology within the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Dr Fatsis’ areas of scholarly interest encompass sociology and criminology, examining sociological interpretations and public perceptions of the public sphere, culture, and intellectual life. He is particularly interested in how certain forms of public expression and creativity are not only marginalised in the relevant academic literature, but also criminalised by the criminal justice system.

His current research focuses on the public criminology debate, and the criminalisation of black urban musical subcultures such as UK hip-hop, grime and bashment through a host of unfair and illegitimate police practices. He is also interested in the political significance of deviance tracing the history of “deviant cultures” from modernity to the present day.

Dr. Fatsis regularly provides expertise on debates around public participation and intellectual life, urban disturbances/riots, and the post-2010 “Greek crisis” to a variety of print and online media that include The Sociological Review blog, the European Politics and Policy (EUROPP) blog of the LSE, The Sociological Imagination blog, The Huffington Post Greece, and Kathimerini.

Dr. Fatsis joined the University of Southampton in 2016. He previously taught Sociology and Criminology at University of Sussex, where he was nominated for the 2015 Student Led Teaching Awards, and received an Award for Excellence in Teaching in the ‘Outstanding or Innovative Undergraduate Teaching’ category. At Southampton he has won a Faculty Teaching Award and has also received a Vice Chancellor’s Award nomination.
