The theme for the BSC annual conference in 2015 is ‘Criminology: Voyages of Critical Discovery’.  This reflects the spirit of Plymouth as a point of departure for numerous voyages of discovery and the conference aims to take criminology on a reflexive and critical voyage that explores our ambivalence over the past, the present and the future.

The conference is organised around a set of plenary panel discussions that provide keynote speakers with the opportunity to present their ideas and discuss them in the round. This exciting format for the conference is intended to encourage and motivate discussion and debate in subsequent panel and paper sessions. This will provide an excellent forum for an inclusionary dialogue and therefore promote a dynamic conference environment from which numerous voyages of critical discovery may be made.

Keynote speakers

  • Dr Mary Bosworth, Director of Graduate Studies at the Centre for Criminology, Reader in Criminology and Fellow of St Cross College at the University of Oxford and, concurrently, Professor of Criminology at Monash University, Australia
  • Professor Elliot P Currie, Professor of Criminology, Law, and Society at the University of California, Irvine
