#HCNet Workshop Report

Seven New Conversations in Historical Criminology

#HCNet - the British Society of Criminology's Historical Criminology Network - held an online workshop on 15 June 2020, bringing together seven working groups to explore areas of common interest in historical criminology. 

Discussions included a wide range of themes, from walking methods to police corruption, path dependence to dark tourism. 

HCNet Chair David Churchill had originally planned to hold the workshop as an in-person event but the UK lockdown meant a change of plan. David, BSC staff and working group coordinators all worked hard to make the event a success and overcome the challenges presented by the online format. Gratefully, holding the workshop virtually meant that #HCNet members all over the world, who might not otherwise have been able to attend, could participate.

You can now read the full write-up of the event on the BSC blog, featuring wonderful illustrations by Laura Evans of Nifty Fox Creative.
