Things to do now

To help you prepare for your studies, you may find it useful to try the following activities:

  • Examine a variety of stories in the news which include offending behaviour, from low level to the more extreme such as ‘terrorism’. Consider the events from the perspective of the person who has offended and the person/people who were offended against. Attempt to just sit with some of the paradoxical ideas of ‘truth’ relating to the events as they might be experienced by each of the actors in each event.
  • Think about a topic that you would like to know more, and how you could design and conduct a research project around this topic.
  • Take 30 min 3-4 times a week to read/ watch the news (Twitter, TV, Apps) to see how crime is reported by the media and what kind of language is used to cover these issues
