About Robyn Lincoln

Robyn's academic background is in psychology, sociology and criminology with special interest in Aboriginal criminal justice issues. She has lectured at Bond since 1994 and also at universities in Queensland (UQ, QUT and Griffith). Her research work has been conducted at UQ, QUT, Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and Rutgers University in New Jersey.
While Robyn has broad-ranging interests in the criminological field, she has focused on the treatment of marginalised groups within the criminal justice system. In particular, her focus is on theoretical developments in the Aboriginal justice arena and this is the subject of her PhD which is near completion.
Her projects have involved research on the careers of white-collar offenders, runaway and homeless youth, violence in Aboriginal communities, fraud by medical practitioners and peer influences on juvenile offending. Robyn's most recent work has centred on the new field of forensic criminology where she has examined miscarriages of justice.
Robyn teaches a wide range of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level including Crime & Deviance, Criminal Justice System, Forensic Victimology, Miscarriages of Justice, Global Criminology, Criminological Research Methods, Theories of Crime, Crime Prevention, Criminal Profiling and Media & Crime.
She also has interests and experience in academic publishing and worked as Senior Editor at Aboriginal Studies Press in Canberra for five years. She was Managing Editor of the Journal of Sociology and was previously Editor of the Australian Journal of Social Issues.
