Seminar with Professor Malcolm Cowburn
hosted by the Public Health Hub, will discuss how minority group prisoners in
HMP Wakefield experience life in custody. Discussion will include how minority
group prisoners' experience of life in prison could be improved, what policies
and practices HMP Wakefield seek to develop in relation to diversity and how
they will implement diversity policies.
areas of interest include:
and sexual violence; thinking about how sexual violence and sex offenders are
socially constructed. This requires addressing both psychological and
sociological understandings of sexual harm and finding ways to incorporate both
of these approaches to sexual violence into different ways of thinking about
men, male behaviour, male sex offenders and community safety.
the management of diversity; understanding the intersection of identities -
race, ethnicity, gender, faith, sexuality, disability and age - and how these
can cast light on the ways in which prisoners manage their time in jail.
These areas require
detailed and rigorous exploration of the ethical issues underpinning research
practise. Prime concern is the tension between allowing research participants
to speak openly and freely whilst ensuring that research does not collude with
intended or on-going harm to other people.
