Producing, Consuming & Perceiving Prisons in the Former Soviet UnionIn The Gulag's Shadow
The IGS Team at Russian Readings Seminar Series Oxford! (18/03/2019)
The IGS Team presents the start of our 3-year work to the Russian Readings Seminar Series Oxford.
Dr Laura Piacentini and Dr Gavin Slade present work at the Russian Readings seminar “The geographies of penitentiary system in (post) Soviet Russia”. Also in attendance from the team were Elena Omelchenko and Daniel Horn to support a wonderful presentation and their own work in the area. The seminar explored a variety of issues in penal studies and criminal justice, spanning global, regional, and local levels – with the project’s work looking at the unique case of former Soviet Union (fSU) countries and recent development in prison and crime trends.
Many amazing speakers, and a wonderful event!
