Max Osborn, PhD

I am a criminologist and sociologist who earned a PhD in Criminal Justice at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and The Graduate Center, CUNY. My work focuses on the carceral system’s impact on LGBTQIA+ populations, trauma and resistance, media depictions of crime and victimization, and prison abolition and decarceration.

In Fall 2022, I will join the Department of Sociology and Criminology at Villanova University as an assistant professor.


Please feel free to reach out and I will respond at my earliest availability.
