How can feminism engage meaningfully with environmental harm? Why should those concerned about environmental harm also be concerned with issues of gender? This one-day conference joins feminism, gender studies, and green criminology, to explore the intersections between gender, environmental, non-human animal, and wildlife crimes and harms.

Green Criminology in the Anthropocene
In association with the BSC North-East regional branch.
16th January 2020 – Northumbria University
In the context of widespread, human-induced environmental harm criminology – as the discipline primarily concerned with questions of deviance and social control – finds itself particularly relevant. As such, this one day symposium aimed to spark debate in criminology about how best to respond to contemporary and emerging environmental crimes and harms at a time when existing responses appear ineffective.
Future events will be announced in the BSC bulletin, the network’s newsletter that is sent out to members, and via the network’s Twitter account.

The conference aim was to kick start a new discussion in criminology – one that engages thoughtfully, but vigorously, with the ways in which the discipline can be brought to bear on a range of issues that are acknowledged widely but largely misunderstood.
The network was formally launched at the Annual BSC conference at the University of Lincoln, in July 2019.
