Institute of Criminology


Speaker: Dr Rimple Mehta (Lecturer in Social Work and Community Welfare, Western Sydney Australia)

Dr Rimple Mehta has previously worked at the School of Social Work, Tata Institute for Social Sciences, Mumbai and School of Women's Studies, Jadavpur University, Kolkata as an Assistant Professor. Her doctoral work centered around the experiences of Bangladeshi women in Correctional Homes in Kolkata for which she received the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (SYLFF) at Jadavpur University. Her research and field engagements broadly focus on women prisoners, refugee women, and trafficking with engagement questions of borders, citizenship and criminology of mobility. She adopts an intersectional feminist perspective in her work with a strong emphasis on questions of epistemology, therefore viewing ‘reality’ from intersecting positions of marginality.  Her widely acclaimed book titled "Women, Mobility and Incarceration: Love and Recasting of Self across the Bangladesh-India Border" was published by Routledge in 2018. Apart from academia, she has worked with women prisoners in Mumbai, Kolkata and the Netherlands and with organisations such as Swayam and networks such as Maitree against violence on women in West Bengal.
