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
The BSC annual conference gives postgraduate students the opportunity to present papers in the main conference and also in their own dedicated section of the conference. However, COVID put a stop to that in 2020. Instead, sit back and watch a seminar on public engagement below and also check out the Global Injustice – Beyond the Conference events here.
Public Engagement and Your Audiences
Focussing specifically on Early Career Researchers and Postgraduates, this event was interactive and asked delegates to think about their work and its possible audiences. It also included some guidance on non-academic press outlets.
This event was on Zoom and free to attend

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.

This British Society of Criminology Postgraduate thinking differently about harm seminar day provided a safe space for discussion around the philosophical position of harm as well as the very real consequences that marginalised groups face.
