The Historical Criminology Network is centrally concerned with promoting, developing and embedding historical approaches to criminology. Its principal aims are as follows:
- To promote historical scholarship within criminology.
- To forge closer dialogue between historical researchers working on topics relevant to criminology.
- To encourage use of historical resources in research and teaching in criminology.
The Chair will be responsible for the smooth running of the Network, and will normally serve for a term of three years. The Chair will appoint a Steering Group from amongst members to assist with the running of the Network. Approximately six months prior to the expiration of the Chair’s term, all members of the Network will be contacted, inviting those who are eligible to stand for the position. If more than one candidate comes forward, a vote of all Network members will be held. If no candidate comes forward, the existing Chair may serve for an additional 12 months.

Future events will be announced in the bi-monthly bulletin.
