Postgraduate bursary with BSC2015


The theme for the 2015 conference is: ‘Criminology: Voyages of Critical Discovery’. This reflects the spirit of Plymouth as a point of departure for numerous voyages of discovery. The British Society of Criminology (BSC) annual conference 2015 aims to take criminology on a reflexive and critical voyage that explores our ambivalence over the past, the present and the future. We are delighted to be supporting a bursary for one DCGC candidate at any of the programme’s partner universities to attend this year’s conference.

With the spirit of adventure comes the necessity of critical reflection, debate and contestation. With this in mind the BSC 2015 conference is organised around a set of plenary panel discussions that provide keynote speakers with the opportunity to present their ideas and discuss them in the round. This exciting format for the conference is intended to encourage and motivate discussion and debate in subsequent panel and paper sessions. This will provide an excellent forum for an inclusionary dialogue and therefore promote a dynamic conference environment from which numerous voyages of critical discovery may be made.

DCGC candidates are invited to apply for the conference bursary and more information can be found here: The bursary will cover the full postgraduate and main conference package including accommodation costs for one postgraduate student. Applications must be received by 15 May 2015.
