The International Symposium on the History of Crime is a forum for international university students to explore the understanding of issues surrounding the history of crime. The annual symposium was created to bring together doctoral, masters, and undergraduate students as well as early career academics in a friendly academic environment that facilitates discussion around history of crime issues.

Over the past two years the symposium has been attended by students and academics from the USA, UK and France. For the 3rd symposium it is expected there will also be contributions from students and faculty from Spain and Portugal. The symposium is deliberately broad in reach and we make every effort to draw together wide and diverse topics in order that contributors feel encouraged to participate and present their research inprogress as well as engaging and informative short papers.

Proposals for inclusion should be email to :
