Lecturer in Sociology and Criminology, University of Southampton

Lambros Fatsis is Lecturer in Sociology and Criminology at the University of Southampton and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He previously taught at the University of Sussex, and has received several awards and nominations for teaching excellence and academic support as well as for communicating his research through blogging.

His scholarly interests revolve around 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.

Parts of his research have been published at the European Journal of Social Theory, Crime, Media, Culture and The Sociological Review, and he is currently writing a book with Mark Carrigan on public sociology and social media for Bristol University Press. When he doesn’t teach or write Sociology and Criminology, he writes sociologically-inspired short stories for the So-Fi sociological fiction zine, as well as articles for the British Society of Criminology blog, The Sociological Review blog, the European Politics and Policy (EUROPP) blog of the LSE, The Sociological Imagination blog, The Huffington Post Greece, and the prestigious Greek national daily I Kathimerini.
