This workshop brings together historians of women and migration, including those from the Bad Bridget Project, as well as national and international experts working in the US criminal justice system, with Irish immigrants in the US, and with women in prison in Northern Ireland, to discuss links between the historical and contemporary issues facing migrants and women accused of criminal activity.

‘Bad Bridget past and present: women, crime and migration’ is an exciting workshop that will offer much to those interested in historical as well as contemporary perspectives on issues about criminality, immigration and emigration, poverty, gender and discrimination. Registration is free here
