Tomorrow afternoon I will be presenting a short paper at the British Society of Criminology 2008 Conference in Huddersfield along with Carolyn Shelbourn and Simon Mackenzie. It should be a great panel, I’m looking forward to both the other presentations, and I’ll post a short summary of my talk and the panel on Thursday.
