Registration open for Crime, Justice and the Modern State (Lyons, France, 9/8-10/2011)

The third in a series of international conferences on the theme of "Crime, Justice and the Modern State," organized by the SOLON criminal justice network, in collaboration with Lyon 2 University, France, will take place at two locations in the centre of Lyons over three days from 8-10 September. Although the conference covers several historical periods, many papers will be of interest to Victorian specialists, including:
  • Kate Bates (University of Keele), "'A Full and Particular Account': Representations of State Violence in Early 19th Century Broadsides"
  • Cécile Bertrand (Université Paris 7) "Managing Unruly Populations: Exclusion of Violent Classes from the Victorian Order in the 1830s"
  • Christine Kelly (Glasgow University), "Criminalisation of children in Scotland 1840-1910"
  • Adrian Ager (Oxford-Brookes University), "The Topography of Crime in the Medway Basin 1830-1890"
