Crime and the Humanities

A Symposium on Crime, Criminal Law and the Humanities:

Hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science

Crime has always loomed large in our imagination, inspiring writers from Robert Browning, Dostoevsky to PD James. We fear crime increasingly as a society and struggle to find a balance between security, both personal and national, and human rights. This symposium will examine the ways in which specialists in arts and humanities, law, mental health and crime science can collaborate on a better understanding of the impact of crime on individuals and society.

Date: 23 June 2010, 1:00 pm
Venue:  SSEES, 16 Taviton Street, WC1H  0BW, Rooms 431/2
