University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK
Organised by the UCLan Cybercrime Research Unit (UCRU)
Superintendent Detective Geraint Jones. Cheshire Constabulary and TITAN
Dr. Tim Owen, Director of UCRU
Building upon the great success of the first, 2-day conference on Cybercrime at UCLan in June 2016 – ‘Rethinking Cybercrime’ – UCRU are now holding the event on annual basis. The theme of this second Annual Conference on Cybercrime is to critically examine the current ‘state of play’ in global cybercrime and to conceptualise developments, in tandem with attempts to inform social and educational and to respond to threats and combat cybercrime. The emphasis is more upon the ‘application’ of theory and the implications for policy and response to threat.

A Conference on Regulation and Criminology: Looking Back, Thinking Forward
Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, University of Leeds: 3rd July 2017
Since its inception in 1987, academics from the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies have engaged in research concerned with the regulation of behaviour. This conference, one of a series of events to mark the Centre’s 30th anniversary, brings members of the Centre together with other national and international scholars with a shared interest in the regulation of individuals, organisations, and industries.
Recent decades have seen an explosion of regulatory strategies that include, but also significantly transcend, the actions of the state. The complex and multi-faceted nature of regulation has been extensively documented and theorised by Professors John and Valerie Braithwaite in work that has illuminated, shaped, and challenged our understanding of the processes of, and responses to, regulation. It is with great pleasure that the Centre welcomes John and Valerie to the School of Law, to deliver the opening and closing plenary lectures at the conference.
Attendance is free, but spaces are limited and registration is required. For more details and to book a place see: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/a-conference-on-regulation-and-criminology-looking-back-thinking-forward-registration-33696285497

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 (email@example.com), 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.

ACJS 55th Annual Meeting
February 13-17, 2018
“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.
