Increasingly we are told of the need to think interdisciplinary and to consider being flexible in the pursuit of employment in the academy, but rarely does such advice go any further. In this professional development panel, you will hear from Associate Professor Julie Evans (University of Melbourne), Dr Larissa Sandy (RMIT University), and Dr Imogen Richards (Deakin University). Whilst they currently are academics in criminology and criminal justice, criminology and criminal justice has not always been their home discipline. Collectively, they have worked and studied in history, literature, political science, Asian studies, anthropology, and gender studies. With their truly dynamic and interdisciplinary experiences, they will talk about their journey to criminology and criminal justice, their reasoning for entering the discipline of criminology and criminal justice, and what the discipline (particularly postgraduates and early career researchers) can learn from other disciplines.
