BSC Conference – 6-9th July 2016

The Postgraduate Conference, Nottingham Conference Centre, 6-9th July 2016

The Postgraduate Committee organises its own event prior to the main annual BSC conference. The BSC Postgraduate Conference is an opportunity to discuss work in progress in a friendly and supportive environment. It also provides a forum for gaining constructive feedback from peers and a chance to engage in what we hope will be lively debate with other postgraduate criminologists. The conference also presents an opportunity to meet a number of established scholars in an informal setting. The Postgraduate conference is open to all post graduate students and there are student bursaries available.

The call for papers, draft agenda and registration for this year’s Conference, ‘Inequalities in a Diverse World’, are now available:
