Crime and the City
This is a one day symposium on “Crime and the City”. The Centre for Criminological Research at the University of Sheffield, with support from the White Rose University Consortium, is hosting a one day symposium on “Crime and the City”.
This symposium will draw on and develop the themes of the current White Rose project which currently funds three studentships; covering Security, Diversity and Locality: Community perceptions of crime disorder and terror within everyday urbanism; Men and Violence: contextualising dangerousness in global cultural transformationsand Being Feared: Micro-dynamics of fear and insecurity in global city spaces. These are each criminology/criminal justice focused and themed around issues of community, identity, place, security, exclusion, violence, location, city, fear, gender, ethnicity and crime/disorder.
We are looking to broaden our network in this area and discuss and develop these themes, through a series of papers and discussions.
Registration Fee : £25 (includes Lunch)
Travel (within Yorkshire) and conference fee bursaries are available for the first 40 registrations from White Rose Institutions.
