Latest Entry: Children of offenders – a workshop, March 2017
How might historians work with practitioners and policy makers concerned with parents who are offenders and their children? In March 2017, the History & Policy Parenting Forum hosted a small scoping workshop which brought together historians with those working with or campaigning for parents in prisons or on probation. It considered how a historical perspective might be useful in this work. This blog reflects on the findings from our workshop, and more broadly on the benefits and challenges for historians and academics of pursuing collaborations, particularly in a testing time of cuts and restructuring.
