BSC Early Career Researchers Network
The newly established BSC Early Career Researchers Network was officially launched in Nottingham 2016.
The ECRN aims at:
– Being the first reference point for Early Career Researchers in Criminology in the UK. While we do not place any rigid definition on the term ‘early career researcher’ the term is commonly associated to post-doc researchers within 5 years from the completion of their PhD.
– Establishing links with similar ECRN groups in other learned society (such as ASC and ESC) and with other networks and groups in the BSC as well to avoid duplication of efforts.
– Supporting the organisation of workshops of interests to Early Career Researchers, such as meetings with publishers, editors, UK Councils’ officers, Research Officers, methodology experts etc.
– Establishing a platform to share ideas and research findings during the annual conference, through appropriately themed panels under the same stream and in other occasions throughout the year.
Watch out for the following at the annual conference:
“Can we really publish something new?” Discussion on publishing first monographs in criminology with Josephine Taylor for Palgrave Macmillan and Associate Professor Pamela Davies (Northumbria University).
“Are we in the News? A conversation between academia and the media”, with Jake Riddell, journalist with Freemantle Media, Dr Anna Di Ronco (University of Essex) and Dr Nic Groombridge (University of South Wales).
“Doing Research in high-risk environments or high-security fields: a roundtable to share experiences”, with Bingul Durbas (University of Sussex) Kate Gooch (University of Leicester) Kirstine Szifris (Manchester Metropolitan University) Simone Santorso (University of Hull).
