This concluding chapter offers a brief summary of the book, along with some short illustrative anecdotes to close the text. It includes a discussion of some of the limitations of the visual criminology outlined in the book, along with a description and discussion of the problems of the senses presented by ocularcentrism and visuocentrism in contemporary culture and theory, and the ways in which it might lead a visual criminology away from important analyses and perspectives. The chapter concludes with some final thoughts on the role of visual criminology—as one dimension of a broader sensory criminology—in the contemporary world.

Keywords:   Ocularcentrism, Visuocentrism, Senses, Sensory Criminology
