Remembering the riots

Chloe Peacock, 2014 John Sunley Prize winner, provides an ethnographic exploration of the ways in which the 2011 London riots and the riot ‘clean-up’ are remembered and talked about.

Drawing on interviews with students in a South London comprehensive school, Peacock explores the ways in which dominant discourses are variously embodied, resisted and challenged.

The John Sunley Prize celebrates excellence and the impact of post graduate research into penal issues.
