The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) will be hosting a five-part lecture series on Crime and Society throughout the month of October. I wouldn't ordinarily publish details of a lecture series so far in advance, but PRONI's lectures often book up way in advance, so I'll make an exception.
Each lecture will be presented at 1pm, as follows:
Thursday 1 October : 19th-Century prison records, with Chris Colvin
Thursday 8 October: The women's suffrage campaign, with Margaret Ward
Thursday 15 October: Female political imprisonment during the Irish Civil War, with Laura McAtackney
Thursday 22 October: DeLoran: Back to the failure, with Graham Brownlow
Thursday 29 October: NIGRA & decriminalisation, with Jeff Dudgeon & Richard Kennedy
All lectures at PRONI are free but you have to reserve your place by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (+44) 028 90 534800.
