Biography

Emma was appointed as a lecturer in Criminal Justice in the School of Law in December 2013. Her research is committed to studies of the military veteran in policy discourse, criminal justice practice, and socially engaged and participatory art practice. Emma approaches the issues faced by veterans through the concept she has developed ‘Veteranality’ which is dedicated to the voices and lived experiences of military veterans. Through multi-disciplinary forms of engagement her work seeks to bring together academics, the arts, policy makers and advocates with veteran communities. Testament to this is her leading role in the Reimagining the Veteran Project at the University.

Emma is recognised internationally for this work, particularly within the criminal justice system, and acts as a keynote speaker, Chair, guest lecturer, and host for events in this area. Her extensive first-hand experience of researching veterans has led to several positions as ‘a critical friend’, with criminal justice practitioners across the UK, who are tasked with the punishment and rehabilitation of veteran offenders. In 2013, Cheshire Probation Trust presented Emma with the a ‘Notable Contribution to Veterans’ award.

Emma is the research partner for FACT, Liverpool (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology). This partnership focusses upon breaking down the conversational barriers between veterans, academics, policy makers and cultural producers, with the aim of developing new pedagogical tools that result from innovative transdisciplinary engagement with veteran communities and creative arts. Through this work Emma has collaborated with internationally acclaimed artists on digital arts projects which have toured the UK, America and Europe. Emma is currently the principal investigator of a three-year project funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, ‘Resolution’. Through a deep engagement between artists and participants, this project works with veterans within the criminal justice system to explore identity and the notion of contemporary citizenship. Art is presented as a platform for voices that are rarely heard to explore participants status in society. Emma’s role draws heavily the concept ‘criminological artivism’, which she and others in the Centre for Crime, Criminalisation and Social Exclusion (CCSE) are in the process of developing alongside the Howard League for Penal Reform. In essence she is responsible for aligning social science with this artistic programme and sharing the work with key stakeholders beyond the cultural sector. HMP Liverpool and HMP Altcourse are significant partners for this project.

Emma is also the academic research partner for the Probation Institute on a developing project concerning veterans who have committed a serious criminal offence. She works closely with the Royal British Legion’s national Breaks and Recovery Service and the Merseyside and Cheshire local branch. Most notably, alongside Dr Giles Barrett, Emma conducted The National Evaluation of The Royal British Legion Breaks Services (2017-2018), and alongside Ms Ester Ragonese conducted a needs analysis for service providers in Cheshire East working with armed forces communities and social isolation (2017). In 2018, The Royal British Legion awarded Emma ‘Community Influencer’ in the Merseyside Area for work with veterans. In 2019, Emma will act as ‘resident expert’ for The South Yorkshire Armed Forces Covenant Project with Sheffield Hallam University and Manchester Metropolitan University.

Emma acts as a PhD supervisor and external examiner for projects concerning veterans and the criminology/ critical pedagogy of war, and is happy to be contacted regarding future projects in these areas.

In 2015, Emma was awarded the Vice Chancellor's Award for Rising Star in Teaching and Learning.

In 2016, Emma was awarded the Vice Chancellor's Spotlight Research Award and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

In 2018, Emma was awarded a Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Voucher alongside colleagues in the School of Humanities and Social Science.
