Event Details

 This is a free event but registration is required in advance.

You are cordially invited to the inaugural event in the Leeds Historical Criminology Seminar Series. This exciting new venture aims to showcase research that uses historical perspectives to enrich understandings of crime, criminal justice and related issues in the present as well as the past. It will provide a new platform from which academics, students, practitioners and others can engage with the latest relevant research from across a range of academic disciplines. In doing so, the seminar series aims to build linkages across academic disciplines and advance shared appreciations of how historical research can transform our understandings of crime and social responses to crime in the present. 

 

The first event in the series will take place on January 24th 2018 at the School of Law, University of Leeds. The event will be themed around ‘History and Criminal Justice Policy’ and will feature four extended presentations that address some aspect of this theme. We are delighted that four distinguished and highly regarded researchers, drawn from criminology and history, have agreed to speak. Professor Paul Rock, Professor Louise Jackson, Dr Rosalind Crone and Dr Mark Roodhouse will all give presentations and invite discussion of their research findings. Lunch will also be provided for all delegates. A schedule, plus titles and abstracts of presentations, is included below.

 

The seminar series is organised by Dr David Churchill, Professor Heather Shore and Dr Henry Yeomans and is hosted jointly by the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University. The inaugural event has been kindly supported by the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies (University of Leeds).
