13–14 September 2022, Keble College, University of Oxford

Call for Posters

Please note- the call for posters has closed (Monday 4 July) and we are no longer accepting submissions.

The last two years have brought the fragility of human existence into sharp relief. This conference and accompanying festival for change is happening as we emerge from a time of intense uncertainty. Governments, civil society and communities face formidable problems and difficult choices that could have enduring repercussions for justice. This conference will provide an opportunity to reimagine how the penal system should work.

You can find out more about the conference here, including the call for papers, abstract submission guidelines, conference themes, and confirmed speakers.

We are inviting submissions for posters about your research, to be displayed at a poster exhibition during the conference. This may be of particular interest to PhD students and early career researchers.
