Mr Tony Murphy BSc, MSc, PgCert, PgDip

Senior Lecturer In Criminology


Summary

I teach across a range of areas at undergraduate level, and I have been teaching since 2008. I am currently working on a number of research projects, some housed within the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice, and others external to this. My research interests span the social sciences broadly.

About

I joined Hallam in February 2013. I previously held teaching posts at the University of Westminster and Manchester Metropolitan University, and I worked as a Research Assistant within the Department of Social Policy at the LSE. I also tutor for the Open University within the Faculty of Social Sciences. At the LSE I completed a BSc in Sociology and an MSc in Social Policy and Planning. I have also studied for a PgDip in Social Research Methods, a PgCert in Professional Studies in Education (Educational Research Methods) and a PgCert in Social Science Research Methods through the Open University. I also recently completed a PgCert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education at SHU, with associated HEA Fellowship status. I am currently studying for an MSc, with the intention of progressing on to a D.Phil, at the University of Oxford. My research interests span areas of criminology and the social sciences more widely. I am particularly interested in historical dimensions of crime, justice, and social order, and the connections between criminology and the wider domains of social policy. I also retain an interest in education policy.
