The conference will utilise ‘ignite’ presentations for researchers and practitioners to highlight current research and technologies. For attendees wishing to present (a maximum of 5 minutes and 18 slides), please see Registration and Submission details below.
A preliminary conference programme is provided below.
The International Environmental Crime Conference showcases leading research that highlights the intersection between Technology and Environmental Crime. In particular, it focuses on the way technology is used to facilitate and perpetrate environmental crime and respond to its challenges.
Environmental crime is one of the most profitable and fastest growing crimes internationally. Heightened awareness of the proliferation and scale of the harms involved is altering the way we view and interact with our world. In particular, people and places are linked in new ways through the rise of e-waste, transnational transportation and dumping of toxic waste, systematic and accidental pollution, and the illegal trafficking and destruction of flora and fauna, as examples. These crimes are interconnected and intertwined with technology. ‘Neutral’ technologies are utilised and applied, on the one hand to create and facilitate environmental harms, and on the other to provide innovative and vital solutions. From UAVs, satellite monitoring, big-data and smartphones to e-waste, GMOs and the internet trade in wildlife – technology continues to change the face of, and responses to, environmental crime.
This conference is organised by Jennifer Maher (University of South Wales), Toine Spapens (Tilburg University, Daan van Uhm (Utrecht University), Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria University), and Rob White (University of Tasmania).
Please direct any questions to the conference host Jennifer Maher (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Persons wishing to attend must book online before 1 September 2017, using our Online Registration Form.
If you would like to present, please submit a title and short [maximum 100 words] abstract to the conference host email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is 1 August 2017.
THE SOCIETA’ ITALIANA DI STUDI SUL SECOLO DICIOTTESIMO AND THE BRITISH SOCIETY FOR EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES ANNOUNCE THE SIXTH ANGLO-ITALIAN JOINT CONFERENCE
Sapienza University of Rome, 13-15 September 2017.
CESARE BECCARIA’S ON CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS AND EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY BRITAIN; LAW, HISTORY, PHILOSOPHY, LITERATURE. A TWO-WAY PERSPECTIVE
In 1767 Beccaria’s treatise appeared in English for the first time, under the title of An Essay on Crimes and Punishments. On the 250th anniversary of this translation, the conference intends to draw attention to the early reception of Beccaria’s text in the English-speaking countries and to his possible debt and contribution to contemporary British thought. Unlike the relations between Beccaria and the French world, which over the centuries have stimulated a considerable number of studies, the presence of England in Beccaria’s works and his own impact on British philosophy, politics and culture has, in general, been comparatively under-researched. We aim to start filling this gap.
This conference is calling for papers in order to help to map the cultural, philosophical, literary and political network linking the British and Anglo-American worlds with the Milanese group to which Beccaria and the Verri brothers belonged. We welcome papers focused on exchanges between English-speaking countries and northern Italy and vice versa. Possible subjects related to the theme of the conference might, for instance, include: Addison’s The Spectator and the works of the Milanese group; the presence of Italian intellectuals in the British academies of the time, and vice versa; the role of contemporary Italian expatriates in Britain and of British expatriates and travellers in Italy; newspapers and periodicals; pamphlets; the book-market; parliamentary debates, etc. From a philosophical perspective, possible topics might also include the textual presentation of the law, the debates relating to justice, torture, the death penalty, and science and happiness.
So the choice and methods of approach are set wide, in the hope of stimulating research across as broad a spectrum of intellectual activity as possible. In addition to the impact of Beccaria’s ideas on America’s Founding Fathers, on English penal theory and practice, and on Jeremy Bentham, a number of other possible subjects suggest themselves. These include Beccaria and various figures of the Scottish Enlightenment, poetry as well as novels (such as Goldsmith’s The Vicar of Wakefield, Godwin’s Caleb Williams, Radcliffe’s The Italian, and Holcroft’s Memoirs of Brian Perdue). The plenary speakers will be Gianni Francioni, General Editor of the National Edition of Beccaria’s works, and Philip Schofield, General Editor of the Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham.
Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers. Abstracts in Italian, English or French, of 200 words maximum, should be sent to John Dunkley (D2148@outlook.com) and Rosamaria Loretelli (firstname.lastname@example.org), headed ANGLO-ITALIAN CONFERENCE, by 15 January 2017.
The registration fee, which will cover a reception and two lunches, will be €70, to be transferred to the bank account of Sapienza Università di Roma, IBAN IT 71 I 02008 05227000400014148, BIC SWIFT code: UNCRITM1153, under the heading of “DIPARTIMENTO 316, ANGLO-ITALIAN CONFERENCE”, specifying the name of the payer in case it is not the bank account holder.

13-16 September 2017
Challenging ‘Crime’ and ‘Crime Control’ in Contemporary Europe.
The last year has been the Year of the Disruptor, when right wing populist movements have transformed the political landscape and the climate for constructing and dealing with ‘crimmigration’ and other ‘security problems’, despite generally falling conventional crime rates. It is therefore a great time for us to get together and reflect both on our existing areas of research and theoretical expertise and on the challenges that are posed for them by these broader economic and political currents.
The theme of the conference explores four key challenges for ‘crime’ and ‘crime control’ as phenomena and criminology as a discipline:
- The rise in intolerance of longer-established but often termed ‘new’ crimes such as domestic and commercial violence against women and men (aspects of which are now badged as ‘modern slavery’).
- The changes in technologies which (alongside other influences) have impacted on the police-recorded and real rates of some more traditional crimes, requiring a shift in focus, in crime measurement and in public & private ‘plural policing’, as well as on personal transparency to commerce, to other internet users, and to domestic and foreign governments.
- The simultaneous localisation and globalisation of ‘terrorist threats’, which have generated a shift in securitisation, growing monitoring/restrictions on civil liberties and a closer relationship between the police and security services in European countries and elsewhere.
- The impact of austerity and public finances on levels of crime and on how we react to crimes, including policing, criminal justice and the sanctioning of offenders.

Free to attend
De Montfort University
It is one year on from Dame Sally Coates’ Review of prison education, Unlocking Potential. Lots has changed and is proposed to change: the role of Governors in commissioning; the introduction of new OLASS funding flexibilities; technology pilots; the introduction of ‘Unlocked Graduate’ prison officers and blossoming prison/university partnerships, to name a few.
The Prisoner Learning Alliance (PLA) has been at the forefront of shaping the prison education policy agenda and is now focused on ensuring positive impacts are felt on the ground in prisons and that good practice is shared effectively. This year’s conference is therefore called ‘Doing Things Differently: A New Era for Prison Education‘. We will be hearing from a range of speakers including Governors, former prisoner learners and education providers. The day will include knowledge exchange workshops where you can find out about innovative ways prisons are using the new ‘engagement and progression’ and ‘enablers of learning’ OLASS funding flexibilities.

This one-day conference explores the latest developments in the treatment of firesetting and arson. It is a unique coming together of a range of guest speakers and professionals working with children, adolescents and adults who set fires, to network and learn from practitioners who are pioneering in this specialist field.
Practical Assessment and Intervention Strategies for the Management of Childhood Firesetting – Professor David Kolko Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, Paediatrics and Clinical & Translational Science at the University of Pittsburgh, Professor Kolko is recognised as a leading world authority on juvenile firesetting. His nearly 40 years’ experience of working with children and adolescents who set fires form his latest firesetter guidance manual, published by the Oxford University Press, and provides the main discussion point of the conference.
Why I Set Fires and the Reasons I Stopped At twelve years old, Jenny-Lee was referred to her local fire brigade for support in stopping setting fires. Now aged 18, Jenny-Lee looks back at why she set fires and what helped her to stop. During this Q&A session, Jenny-Lee will show the practical exercises and strategies she completed during her fire safety intervention.
Working with Adult Firesetters: A Fire and Rescue Service Perspective Supported by the Cognitive Centre, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service has developed an integrated educational programme currently being piloted in several UK prisons. We will learn how the programme aims to ensure participants become familiar with the dangers and risks of deliberate firesetting and are able to reflect on their offence and its consequences.
Clinical Treatment Needs of Adult Firesetters – Professor Theresa Gannon Consultant Forensic Psychologist and Professor of Forensic Psychology and Director of the Centre for Research and Education in Forensic Psychology at the University of Kent, Professor Gannon will present the latest psychological developments relating to the theory, research and intervention needs of adult firesetters. Outlining two treatment programmes devised to reduce risk in adult firesetters, Professor Gannon will also discuss what needs to be done to improve both academic and client practice with adult firesetters.

ACJS 55th Annual Meeting

“So What? Understanding What It All Means”
Hilton New Orleans Riverside
New Orleans, LA
Redesigning Justice: Promoting civil rights, trust and fairness
21–22 March 2018, Keble College Oxford
Our relationship with justice is complex. Justice and the systems for delivering (criminal) justice are often criticised but rarely is there a credible, achievable challenge to the status quo proposed: most want to tinker around the edges. We are witnessing a global climate of mistrust and challenge to the establishment, political elites as well as justice leadership. The time is right to consider the way we do justice and what we want the justice system to achieve.
The conference will shine a light on seemingly intransigent aspects of justice systems including what equality and legitimacy mean 50 years after the assassination of Martin Luther King and why prison is still so central to justice responses to crime. It will also seek to develop thinking on the changing dynamics of crime with the increasing prominence of cybercrime and fraud but also the impact of the changing nature of public discourse, with the rise of social media, on justice debates.
