Seminar on History and Criminal Justice Policy @ University of Leeds [January 24]: Registrations Open

The School of Law, University of Leeds is inaugurating 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 24 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 innovative 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 extended presentations and invite discussion of their research findings. Lunch will also be provided for all delegates.
