Postgraduate bursaries - the BSC in conjunction with our sponsors Hart Publishing, the Howard League for Penal Reform, the HEA and the Home Office and Ministry of Justice have offered the chance for a number of postgraduates to attend the conference free of charge. The deadline has now passed and applicants will be notified shortly.

Conference Theme/Title

The overarching conference theme/title is Crime, Justice, Welfare: Can the Metropole Listen?

Criminology, like other core social science disciplines, reflects a tendency to over-write the metropolitan experiences of the Northern hemisphere. Criminology’s starting point, therefore, is based upon the continual attempt to reinvent, improve, or make more just, a ‘rule of law’ society in the image of the hegemon. Such over-writing takes its toll on the ‘discipline’ in multi-faceted ways, all of which tend to contribute to hegemonic epistemologies and practices that serve to marginalise different ways of thinking about, and engaging with, an alternative criminological enterprise.

Taking as its starting point the intrinsic connections between crime, welfare and (in)justice, the Liverpool conference will examine the counter-hegemonic potential of criminology, and explore how it might give ‘voice’ to those that stand outside the dominant narratives of the metropole.
