Centre for Crime and Policing Seminar and Conference Series

The Centre for Crime and Policing Network seminar series showcases emerging cutting-edge contributions of research staff from across Northumbria University. Each session provides an opportunity for staff to present their research findings on key topics for contemporary policing and to reflect on the challenge of developing evidence based for police practice. The seminars are informal and designed to promote debate between academics and practitioners from the police and other relevant agencies.  

Now in its fourth year, the series has addressed topics including forensic science, police workforce development, the legal status of expert evidence, the policing of criminal assets, and effective responses to gendered violence. Participants include professional practitioners, academics, students and members of the public.

Police visibility online during the COVID-19 pandemic 

Dr Liam Ralph

Police services across the globe have increasingly turned to social media during the COVID-19 pandemic to engage with citizens. In this talk, Dr Liam Ralph highlights the opportunities and challenges for the police using social media during the pandemic. Specific attention is given to how the police have used social media and the implications of this on maintaining citizen engagement. This is based on fieldwork carried out with four police services across England and Wales as part of an ESRC-funded Visible Policing project with Professor Mike Rowe (Northumbria University), Professor Andrew Millie (Edge Hill University), and Dr Matt Jones (The Open University).

CANCELLED: 19th January 2022, Seminar: Constructing new misogynies: a media analysis of upskirting

CANCELLED: Constructing new misogynies: a media analysis of upskirting 

Dr Ruth Lewis

Wednesday 19th January, 5pm-6pm

This talk will consider upskirting as a new form of misogyny, albeit sexist voyeurism has a longer history. It will present findings from an analysis of how upskirting has been portrayed in recent press media. It will examine how the media have depicted the acts of upskirting—taking non-consensual photos as well as distributing and consuming them online—the perpetrators, and the victims. In this way, it will assess the public construction of upskirting, as a new performance of misogyny.
