Research Assistant in History of the Security Industry
Closing: February 28, 2021
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in criminology or security studies, or in modern economic, social or cultural history? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?
You will work with Dr David Churchill, Associate Professor in Criminal Justice, on an exciting, interdisciplinary AHRC Leadership Fellowship project.
This project – ‘Security for Sale in Modern Britain: Security Provision, Ensembles and Cultures, 1785-1995’ – will explore the development of security commodities and the security industry in modern Britain. Focusing on five key security commodities – locks, safes, alarms, guarding and secure transit services – the research will illuminate the business history of the security industry, the social and technical history of security systems (or ‘ensembles’), and the cultural history of attitudes towards risk and security. It will provide a holistic account of how security was commodified, analysing shifts in the design, production and consumption of products and services, and tracing them through society – into banks, warehouses, offices, public institutions and private homes. Working with archives, museums and private security organisations, the project will also highlight the value of ‘security heritage’ – paper records, material artefacts and other fragments of security’s pasts – and advocate for the preservation and utilisation of such historic resources.
With a degree in a relevant subject and experience of archival research you will play a vital role in developing this exciting project. You will possess excellent analytical and writing skills and the ability to complete a variety of tasks to set deadlines. The ability to work alone and as part of a team are essential, as are strong organisational skills. You will be enthusiastic about communicating research to a range of audiences.
