The Social Science team at the University of St Mark & St John have a broad range of experiences in the fields of criminology, broadcasting and performance.
This event will draw on these experiences to engage young people (year 9) to look at and investigate crime from a variety of angles and perspectives, including; psychology and crime, crime on a global field, the media, conflict resolution, mental health, the arts and science.
During the event, interactive sessions are provided by a team of social science researchers and students designed to stimulate problem solving and discussion.
The interactive day will utilise the space in and around the campus, from outside areas to the radio suite, from the performance areas to psychology and crime labs.
In the afternoon the young people will be supported in presenting their findings through the production of an artefact.
Booking is by invitation only. If you would like your school to be invited, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01752 636727.
This event is led by Dr Hazel Bending, with the team of social
science researchers, Sarah McAdam, Jo Trelfa, Dr Sue Wayman, Christine Smith, Jan Gourd and Associate Professor Lystra Hagley-Dickinson, and their undergraduate students
who are currently studying education, welfare, criminology and media.
