The Postgraduate Committee is a sub-committee of the BSC and comprises of postgraduate research students and academic staff from universities across the UK. The aim of the Postgraduate Committee is to further the interests of current postgraduate students of criminology and related disciplines, and build connections between postgraduate students and the BSC Executive.
The Postgraduate Committee organises workshops and seminars for postgraduate students throughout the year, including a postgraduate event prior to the annual BSC conference.

The Postgraduate Conference
BSC Postgraduate Committee Seminar Series
The BSC Postgraduate Committee launched its ‘Thinking Differently’ series in 2016 to bring together academics and practitioners to critically explore contemporary issues in criminology. The seminars are a space for postgraduates to contribute to challenging taken-for-granted thinking in criminology and criminal justice.
Next event – Chester University July 16, 2019
This British Society of Criminology Postgraduate thinking differently about harm seminar day will provide a safe space for discussion around the philosophical position of harm as well as the very real consequences that marginalised groups face. The ambiguous nature of social harm as a concept within the social sciences supports that contributions to the seminar day can openly interpret this theme in relation to any specific criminological areas of interest. Through consideration of various topics inside the theme of social harm it is hoped that the day will empower developmental discussions surrounding social harm in both a theoretical and practical context. Places are limited and based on a first come first serve basis so booking will be essential.
