Larissa Povey

Lecturer in Criminal Policy


Summary

As Lecturer in Criminology I teach undergraduate students across all levels. I also act as Academic Advisor for Level 4 and 5 students as well as dissertation supervisor at Level 6. In addition to teaching, I am involved in research and scholarly activities which centre mainly on women and criminal justice, punishment beyond the prison and how this intersects with welfare policy, labour markets and social control.

 

About

I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2014 when I commenced my PhD which explores the gendered dimensions of punishment. Since 2016 I have been involved in delivering core and elective modules including those focused on preparing students for highly skilled employment.   Prior to academia, I have worked in various roles in welfare and employability organisations providing government funded national contracts.
