In this session we have the pleasure of speaking to Dr Faith Gordon, Deputy Associate Dean for Research, and Associate Professor of Criminology with the Australian National University, ANU College of Law.

Faith has been involved in a number of fascinating and impactful research projects throughout her career. Faith was lead researcher on a large-scale ESRC Knowledge Exchange Project: Identifying and Challenging the Negative Media Representation of Children and Young People in Northern Ireland. She has also conducted research for The Hillsborough Independent Panel; the Childhood, Transition and Social Justice Initiative; Save the Children; the Children’s Law Centre and the Commissioner for Older People in Northern Ireland. More recently, Faith's ground-breaking research on online harms was referred to by the UK Joint Committee on Draft Online Safety Bill, House of Lords (2021).

In this session, we will discuss some of Faith’s most important and impactful work, exploring what motivates Faith to conduct her research and what she has sought to achieve through it. The session is open to all, but intended primarily for the benefit of Open University students studying DD215 Social Research: Crime, Justice and Society, as well as students studying qualifications that sit within the School of Social Sciences and Global Sciences more broadly.
