Professor Bill Dixon

  • The historical development of criminology and some of the key theoretical debates: why do individuals commit crimes? To what extent is crime a social construct?
  Domestic violence and the criminal justice system
Dr. Lyndsey Harris
  • A discussion of Dr Harris' ‘Responding to Complexity’ research, addressing key components of the A-level specifications relating to crime, deviance, social order and social control by examining the experience of survivors of domestic violence
  • A look at the criminal justice system and the role of key criminal justice agencies including the Police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the Courts
  • A consideration of the barriers victims may face while accessing justice services, drawing upon key literature in criminology and victimology
  The psychology of lie detection
Dr. Zoe Walkington
  • A look at criminal investigations and the pressures and issues affecting both suspects and police investigators
  • A consideration of the key areas psychologists have studied of investigative processes, including an activity during which students can have a go at certain elements of an investigation e.g. detecting deception
  Wearing the niqab
Dr. Irene Zempi
  • Dr Zempi's personal experiences of how she is treated when wearing the niqab and what her research has found 
  • Q&A session
  Life behind bars
Q&A session with a former prisoner as they talk about their life behind bars
