Roger Matthews was a British criminologist renowned as a left realist. He was a Professor of Criminology at the University of Kent and worked with figures such as Cohen and Young. He was part of the National Deviancy Conference and was there when Taylor, Walton and Young publish “The New Criminology”. Matthews was also one of the founders of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control. In this interview, Matthews presented a brief context of British sociocriminological academia in the 1970’s and on. He showed us the academic network between North American and British academics and the rivalry among them. After all that, Matthews still talked about his impressions on European and Latin American Criminology.
Roger Matthews fue un criminólogo británico reputado como realista de izquierdas. Fue profesor de criminología en la Universidad de Kent y participó en la National Deviancy Conference. En esta entrevista, Matthews presenta un breve contexto de la realidad académica socio-criminológica británica en los 70 y más allá. Nos muestra la red académica entre los investigadores norteamericanos y británicos y la rivalidad entre ellos. A continuación, Matthews habla de sus impresiones sobre la criminología europea y la latinoamericana. Sus afirmaciones nos animaron a reflexionar sobre debates recientes en el campo criminológico brasileño y nos alertaron de algunos de los límites de una criminología marginal.
