BSC Historical Criminology Network meet the author events
The aim of this series is to provide a platform to support rich discussion about historical criminology amongst those with an interest, in academia and beyond. Ultimately, we aim to promote new ideas on historical criminology, continuing to widen awareness and generate rich conversation.
Historical criminology as a tool is relevant for the classroom, for research, and appeals to a wider public fascination concerning the role of history in our lives. The event offers the opportunity to meet the authors of new works (not necessarily books alone), including the possibility to pose a range of questions about the content of their work and their approach to historical methodology itself. Attendance offers the opportunity to generate discussion about the role of historical criminology, bringing together a diversity of ideas.
