Professor Stephen Farrall, Professor of Criminology at the University of Sheffield, gave a talk on the topic of “What has been the legacy of Thatcherism for Crime and Justice in England & Wales?”.
The History Faculty were delighted to welcome Professor Farrall, who has published widely on the effects and fear of crime, but has also written extensively on the legacy of Thatcherism, based on research funded by the ESRC. His publications include (with J. Jackson and E. Gray) Social Order and the Fear of Crime in Contemporary Times (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009) and (with B. Godfrey and D. Cox) Serious Criminals: A Historical Study of Habitual Criminals (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2011). He has also edited (with Colin Hay) the influential collection The Legacy of Thatcherism: Assessing and Exploring Thatcherite Social and Economic Policies (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2014).
The History Faculty would like to thank both Professor Stephen Farrall and the audience for a very stimulating lecture.
