Scottish Justice Fellows Platform
Wednesday 24th November, 3.30 – 4.15pm
The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR), Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR) and Scottish Government are delighted to invite you along to our inaugural platform event for Scottish Justice Fellows.
The scheme invited recent PhD graduates to work with academic and policy mentors to convert their findings into briefing papers and other multi-media formats.
In this event we will hear from our first five fellows, Kirsty Deacon, Shane Horgan, Fern Gillon, Annie Crowley and Emma Forbes, summarising their cutting-edge research and chatting about the scheme with Professor Laura Piacentini (University of Strathclyde), Professor Denise Martin (University of Abertay) and Amy Wilson (Head of Justice Analytical Services, Scottish Government).
Dr Louise Brangan Book Launch, ‘The Politics of Punishment’
Thursday 25th November, 3pm
Prisons are everywhere. Yet they are not everywhere alike. How can we explain the differences in cross-national uses of incarceration? The Politics of Punishment explores this question by undertaking a comparative sociological analysis of penal politics and imprisonment in Ireland and Scotland.
Dr Martin Cathcart Frödén Book Launch, ‘A Circular Argument’
Friday 26th November, 3pm
Uniquely combining two parts, one critical in the form of a research piece, and the other creative in the form of a fictional novel, this ground-breaking book spans creative writing, criminology and architecture to look at the ways in which power and hierarchies are explored and exploited in space.
