This online conference will explore entangled histories of crime and imperialism through the lens of genealogy. Scholars from fields of history, criminology, law and related disciplines will explore legacy, inheritance, connectivity and rupture in crime across empire. Scholars of all career stages present 10-minute papers on their research that cover diverse global contexts. These papers will then lead into roundtable discussions that will be facilitated by established academics. It also features a keynote by Professor Clare Anderson entitled Convicts: A Global History.
