In 2018 it will be a decade since the first British Crime Historians Symposium was held. This biennial conference meets every two years as a forum for discussion, debate and the presentation of research for all aspects of the history of crime, law, justice, punishment and social regulation. It has become one of the most significant regular events in these research fields.

Previous events (organised by the British Crime Historians Network) have been held at Leeds, Sheffield, Milton Keynes (OU), Liverpool and Edinburgh. This year the event is supported by ICE and will take place at Edge Hill University’s Ormskirk Campus.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers are:
Professor Eamonn Carrabine (University of Essex)

Professor Ian Burney (University of Manchester)
