Carolyn Strange has enriched her training in history through her appointments in law, criminology, women's studies, and cross-cultural research in Canada and Australia. She is recognised internationally chiefly for her expertise in criminal justice and gender history, although her research also informs contemporary policy debates. Her publications on so-called honour killing and her monograph on pardon and parole in New York build on work stretching back to 1985, which has historicised enduring dilemmas in criminal justice systems in Canada, the U.S., Australia and Britain.

I have held teaching and research appointments in Canadian and Australian universities (iCarleton University, the University of Toronto, and the Australian National University). In addition I have held visiting and honorary appointments at the University of Sydney, Macquarie University, York University, Warwick University, and the University of Toronto.

I have earned fellowships at the State Library of New York and the Huntington Library.
