Current Research

Andrew Nevin’s work is connected to three main substantive areas—technology, deviance, and inequality—that converge through scholarship on the wide-ranging social implications of digital technologies. His current research engages with theoretical debates within the subfield of cyber-criminology by proposing new frameworks that account for the structural differences between online and offline spaces. The empirical application of this work investigates contextual gaps in offending, namely, why some people might engage in misbehaviors on the Internet but not similar transgressions in face-to-face environments. His future research agenda will continue to explore cybercrime and cyberbullying, as well as address other diverse topics under the umbrella of digital sociology. Professor Nevin currently serves as co-chair for the Internet, Technology, & Digital Sociology research cluster within the Canadian Sociological Association.
