Bio | Caitlin Gormley is a lecturer in Criminology, and research associate within the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research, at the University of Glasgow. She received her PhD from the University of Glasgow in 2017 which explored how people with learning disabilities (or cognitive impairments, internationally) experience and make sense of prison life, challenging dominant notions of vulnerability. Her work, informed by inclusive research principles, explores the intersection of disability and justice and cuts across criminology, sociology, and disability studies. Her wider research interests are around marginalised groups’ experiences of punishment, institutional violence, and justice accessibility.
