Call for Contributions

BSC Postgraduates, we need YOU! We are looking for contributions from the criminology postgraduate community, for the all new BSC Postgraduate Blog.

In order to showcase the interesting and cutting edge research that we know postgraduates in criminology are doing, we have opened a call for contributions to the new postgraduate blog. To become a contributor to the blog, we ask that in the first instance you email an expression of interest to nicola.harding@stu.mmu.ac.uk.

Initially all we need to know is a short (150 words max) biography. Including the subject of your PhD, your year of study and university. Additionally please briefly explain what you will blog about. Please enclose a portrait image that you are happy to include with your blog post, and your preferred contact email (also to be published with your blog post).

Once accepted, we will give you a deadline and guidance helping you to submit a 500-800 word blog. Once looked over by the editors, the blog will be published and shared to our mailing list, followers and on social media. We will send you an email with the link to your blog, which you will be able to share and add to your CV.

Blogging is a growing form of academic engagement, and is becoming increasingly valuable for networking and disseminating your research. We look forward to facilitating this for postgraduate students within criminology.
