Becoming a Police Researcher: Ethics and Authenticity

Dr Anna Souhami

As part of the Scarman Lectures Series, hosted by the Department of Criminology at the University, Dr Anna Souhami will question the underlying assumptions about what makes ‘good’ ethnographic research in criminology in her lecture ‘Becoming a Police Researcher: Ethics and Authenticity’.

Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork conducted as part of a major study of policing in the aftermath of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry of which Dr Souhami co-wrote, her talk will explore the ethical difficulties of becoming a police researcher.

The lecture will be held in the Frank and Katherine May lecture theatre, in the Henry Wellcome building at 5:00pm on Wednesday 27 March. It is free and open to all and followed by a wine reception.
