The Postgraduate Committee

  • Chair – Grace Gallacher

    I am currently the chair of the committee. I am interested in wellbeing of students and building and having a support network that transcends our institutions. In this vein, I am focusing on building up the network again and I am always happy to chat to anyone who wants to get involved. I believe we need to support each other and flourish together in a collegiate environment which we can carry on into our careers and beyond. I have recently handed in my PhD so I have experienced most aspects of the journey including child rearing and other ‘fun’ life things, so if you want a supportive place which a dose of realism and a touch of humour please get in touch.

    Grace is a Lecturer in Policing and Criminology at Staffordshire University.

  • I am a Doctoral Researcher and Graduate Teaching Assistant in Social Sciences at York St John University. My research relates to restorative justice, criminological teaching and learning, critical theory, intersectionality, decolonization, and social justice.  I am in the final year of my PhD which critically explores the production, and exclusion, of restorative justice knowledge(s) in criminology curricula in England and Wales. I am also involved in ongoing research exploring decolonisation and intersectionality within higher education curricula with the aim of developing inclusivity and amplifying marginalized voices.
