Early Career Academics Network
The Howard League for Penal Reform’s early career academics network is an internet based network to help you keep in touch with each other, provide a regular channel of communication and information about research and promote closer working and an interface between academics and campaigners. You can link up with other ECAN members through our Facebook group.
The network members’ pages will aim to develop debate, include articles, letters and opinion pieces. There are also periodic events aimed at ECAN members.
The network is intended for academics in their first post or post graduate students aiming for academic or research post. Anyone working in fields related to criminology, social policy, law, humanities or research interests related to these areas can join the network.
‘The Howard League’s Early Career Academic Network has provided me with a user-friendly and convenient way to develop my research ideas. I always find it constructive to explore other academics’ research interests to reflect and create my unique approach to research. The opportunity that ECAN provides for networking is invaluable, and usually one of the best ways to create opportunities is through meeting others. I will continue to use, and recommend the use of ECAN to others throughout my doctoral research and further into the development of my career as a social researcher.’ Claire de Motte, Nottingham Trent University
All members will receive an e-bulletin three times a year providing information about policy developments, resources and campaigns.
