Panel “The Penal Colony in the 19th and 20th century”, to be held at the European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC), Glasgow, from 11 – 14 April 2012.
Network: Criminal Justice
Studies on the penalty of transportation to a penitentiary on the colony often focus on colonization and punishment in the 18th century. Unfortunately, the practice in later periods is poorly studied. Therefore, the aim is to organize a session on the penal colony in the 19th and 20th century. With this session we hope to broaden the scope of case-studies on penal colonies and bring an imperial dimension in to the criminal justice history.
I would like to invite paper proposals which concerns diversified imprisonment and detention practices in the colony in relation to nation building, war, colonization, and (changing) thoughts on punishment and re-education.
If you are interested to contribute to this session, I would like to invite you to send a short paper proposal before Friday April 1 2011 to: Helen Grevers, firstname.lastname@example.org
