Bio/Research

Professor Muzzatti strives to employ sociology’s critical and interpretive traditions to aid students in their analysis of a range of artifacts, texts, practices and actors within broader power-relations. This includes, but is not restricted to advertising and consumption practices, youth tribes, leisure pursuits and transgressive pleasure, resistance and social control. He works diligently to avoid the bifurcation of subjects/objects and invites students to embrace a critical reflexivity.

Prof. Muzzatti’s primary research interest is in the area of cultural criminology, particularly the connections amongst globalisation, late modernity, consumer culture and transgressive and/or criminal behaviour (and its control). As such, his research sites are diverse and include the news media’s criminalisation of youth culture, as well as terrorism, crimes of globalisation, motorcycle culture and street racing, working-class identities, the Italian-Canadian community, advertising and the marketing of transgression and the commodification of violence. The generic theme that sustains his research is the relationship amongst crime, social inequality and culture.
