If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lucian Stephenson.

This seminar draws on observational data from two research studies in young offenders’ institutions and secure training centres to reflect on the role of the arts in youth custody. Liberating or confining? Transforming or passing time? These are the questions that will be considered in a discussion of how youth justice policies and the particularities of the secure setting shape the conceptual reach and delivery of arts education for young people in custody.


Caroline Lanskey is an Affiliated Lecturer at the Institute of Criminology. After completing her PhD in Education at the University of Cambridge, she moved to the Institute of Criminology where she has been involved in a number of research projects at the intersection of education and criminal justice: an evaluation of a training intervention for staff in secure settings for young people; an ESRC postdoctoral research fellowship on the education of young people in custody and, most recently a project on the education pathways of young people in the youth justice system. She is currently developing research with Professor Loraine Gelsthorpe on the impact of the Arts in Criminal Justice.
