University of Abertay
Ashley is currently a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Abertay.
Ashley completed her ESRC-funded PhD on women’s rights, legal consciousness and subjectivity in Bolivia in January 2018 (viva in Dec 2017), after returning from 12-months of ethnographic fieldwork in La Paz, Bolivia. This research engaged with Bolivian women, non-governmental organisations and state bodies to explore law and VAW. She continues to work and be interested in legal consciousness: engagements with law and explorations of legality, and conceptualisations of justice.
After teaching at the University of Stirling since 2009, she left her role to take up a full time position as Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Abertay Dundee in October 2017, where she coordinates ‘Criminal Justice Processes’, ‘Penal Institutions’ and ‘Race and Ethnicity’ as well as teaching on other modules including, but not limited to, ‘Policing and Justice in the 21st Century’.
