Inaugural Lecture; Crime and Photography: Using Photovoice as a route to desistance
The session will be an Inaugural lecture by Wendy Fitzgibbon, Professor of Criminology and programme leader for MSc Criminology at London Metropolitan University and will be followed by a reception.
Professor Wendy Fitzgibbon worked as a Probation Officer for a number of years before becoming an academic in 2003. She has undertaken research in risk assessment, working with dangerous offenders, mentally disordered offenders, penology and probation/social work. Her research has been widely published in a number of journals, edited collections and books including a NAPO Monograph (2004) entitled Pre-emptive Criminalisation; Risk Control And Alternative Futures. Her book entitled Probation and Social Work on Trial: Violent Offenders and Child Abusers (Palgrave Macmillan) was published in 2011. She is the Chair person and founder of the London Practitioner Forum. She is currently involved in a funded European Network examining offenders experiences of supervision. Her most recent research uses the innovative method of Photovoice to explore offenders perceptions of probation and the criminal justice system. She has also been commissioned to co-author a new book on Privatisation and Power: Towards the Private State.
