Northumbria University


Prisons as a Place of Home

Monday 12 March 2018          5.00 pm - 6.30 pm


PLEASE NOTE this event will take place in Room 210 in Squires Building


While matters of punishment, security and rehabilitation dominate debates about contemporary penology it should not be overlooked that prisons are also a place of home. The influence of prison design, facilities and living conditions are considered in this lecture and the ethical and practical implications that arise are outlined.

Yvonne Jewkes is Research Professor in Criminology with a special interest in the architecture and design of prisons. Her research interests encompass various aspects of imprisonment, including the role of prison architecture, design and tech-nology in rehabilitation.

Louise Ridley (Senior Lecturer in Criminology, Northumbria University) will introduce Professor Jewkes, and Dr Wendy Dyer (Senior Lecturer in Criminology, Northumbria University) will provide the afterword.

It is free to attend and booking is not required.
