The Digital Panopticon is a four-year international digital history project to link together existing and new genealogical, biometric and criminal justice datasets held by different organisations in the UK and Australia, exploring the impact of the different types of penal punishments on the lives of 66,000 people sentenced at The Old Bailey between 1780 and 1875. We have six PhD studentships available with topics including convict lives and careers, recidivism, social and spatial worlds, and the impact of digital resources on the history of crime, spread across the Universities of Liverpool, Sheffield and Tasmania.
