Abstract

Award-winning author Jane Monckton-Smith, Professor of Public Protection, presents her Inaugural Lecture. Jane will discuss what it means to her to use research in campaigning. Activist researchers seek to have impact from their work that is measurable, but measuring anything in the social sciences however, is fraught with difficulty and complexity. It will inevitably mean taking a strong position. Sometimes taking a strong position can get you into trouble, but in her opinion that can be ‘good trouble’. Jane will talk about her personal journey working in homicide, and how her work with the police and bereaved families has been difficult, sometimes deeply distressing, but with clear moments for celebration. She will conclude by illustrating how her work is certainly having impact in ways she could not have foreseen. The Speaker A Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Jane's research is focused around interpersonal violence, and especially how we can prevent homicide. She works with professionals in reviewing homicides and training. She also works with families bereaved through homicide to help them with criminal justice processes. Jane works as an advisor in stalking, coercive control and homicide to a number of outside agencies, including police and specialist charities.
