In 2011 Monash University initiated and sponsered the Monash University Postgraduate Prize, an award for the best presentation at the annual Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology Postgraduate Conference.
As an annual prize, this is awarded to the most outstanding presentation of criminological research by a current postgraduate.
The winner of the 2012 prize was Rosemary Cassidy, a doctoral candidate at the University of Western Sydney.
Rosemary Cassidy is a third year doctoral candidate and tutor at the University of Western Sydney. Her PhD project is supervised by Dr. Selda Dagistanli, Dr. Michael Salter and Dr. Roslyn Weaver. This research project employs qualitative methods to explore experiences of university students as victims of crime through in-depth interviewing. Findings will have a focus on victim resilience, health and social outcomes, help seeking and institutional responses. This area is topical as increasing reports regarding victimisation on campus and the vulnerability of students due to age and lifestyle factors. This research attempts to situate such issues in an Australian context as the majority of available information is from international sources. There is also a lack of qualitative data both domestically and overseas. Rosemary is originally from Hobart where she completed a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Criminology and Political Science at the University of Tasmania. She also completed an honours year in Criminology in 2009 with Professor Rob White, exploring causation in risk taking and sensation seeking.
Congratulations Rosemary – this is an outstanding achievement!
