An Award for Best Presentation.
Monash Criminology is an active supporter of the pursuit of excellence in postgraduate research. In 2011 it 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.Monash Criminology Postgraduate Award.
The inaugural winner of the award in 2011 was awarded to Helena Menih, a doctoral student at Griffith University. Her doctoral research is an ethnographic study of homeless women in Brisbane, QLD.
The winner of the award in 2012 was Rosemary Cassidy, a doctoral student at the University of Western Sydney. Her doctoral research employs qualitative methods to explore experiences of university students as victims of crime through in-depth interviewing.
The 2013 winner of the award was Mary Iliadis, an honours student at Monash University in Victoria. Mary’s honours thesis expanded on the seminal work of Nils Christie’s ideal victim theory. Mary will commence a PhD in 2014 in Criminology at Monash University, where she will examine the viability of introducing legal representation for victims in varying contexts within the prosecution process.
