|www.corpun.com : Editor biography|
C. (Colin) Farrell has been researching into corporal punishment for well over forty years. His interest began at primary school when he saw other boys being spanked in front of the class. Later he attended a boys' grammar school where the headmaster administered canings on a more or less daily basis. He became particularly fascinated by the social dynamics of this process, and its place in the prevailing culture, as well as its wider implications in terms of deterrence, retribution, authority, rebellion and conformity. Later his interest extended to other cultures and other forms of CP, especially judicial. He was inspired to start this website partly by a growing sense that long-standing historical realities were being lost sight of in a new and different era.
