We are pleased to announce that we have awarded the inaugural Dawn Stephen prize for the best criminology dissertation.
The prize is awarded to recognise student research that speaks to the critical and applied nature of the criminology curriculum in the School. The winner was chosen by a panel consisting of members of the criminology subject group.
This year’s winner is Dominika Barton, Criminology BA(Hons), for a research project asking: Are animal rights a feminist issue?
Dawn Stephen, a former Deputy Head and Criminology Lead in the school said: “I am thrilled that Dominika is the first recipient of this award and send her my warmest congratulations on producing such an outstanding dissertation, which I was delighted to discover was on a topic very close to my heart.
“Dominika should be rightly proud of this achievement and I know she will go far given her excellent academic abilities.
“Splendid work Dominika! I send all good wishes for your future.”
Congratulations also from everyone in the school!
