About Dr Maria De Angelis

Dr Maria De Angelis is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology. She undertook her doctoral research at the University of Hull in her specialist area - Human Trafficking. Maria's pedagogy and research foreground the relationship between criminal justice and social policy responses.

Maria’s central research interest within human trafficking is women's dual experiences of victimisation and agency. She is published and internationally acclaimed in her area. Maria is a member of CIRN: the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Narrative at St.Thomas' University in Canada.

An affiliated interest lies in researching women’s experiences of immigration detention and removal centres, which Maria will profile at the 2018 World Summit on Positive Psychology in New York.

Current Teaching

Maria also supervises a number of undergraduate and post-graduate students across a diverse range of topics including female sex offenders, forced marriage, asylum, and people trafficking.

Research Interests

Maria is presently concluding empirical inquiry in the field of crimigration – researching dis/empowerment in migrant women’s experiences of immigration detention and the impact of self, policy and community in rebuilding lives. The ‘Rebuilding Lives’ project contributes to achieving a University of Sanctuary status for her university.

Maria is an active member of the Women, Crime and Criminal Justice network (British Society of Criminology) and the Wilberforce Institute of Slavery and Emancipation (WISE).
