Monash Criminology is an active supporter of the pursuit of excellence in postgraduate research. In 2011, we initiated and sponsored the Monash University Postgraduate Prize, which is awarded to the best presentation given at the annual Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology Postgraduate Conference.
In 2013, at the seventh annual Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology Postgraduate Conference, hosted by Griffith University in Brisbane, Monash honours student, Mary Iliadis, received the award for her outstanding poster presentation of criminological research. She joins previous winners, Helena Menih (2011) and Rosemary Cassidy (2012).
Mary has just completed her Honours in Criminology at Monash University and will commence her doctoral studies in Criminology at Monash University in 2014. Prior to commencing at Monash, Mary completed a Bachelor of Legal Studies at La Trobe University. Throughout her degrees, Mary developed a strong interest in socio-legal issues relating to victims of crime, and as a result, chose to pursue her honours research in the field of victimology.
Mary’s honours thesis expanded on the seminal work of Nils Christie’s (1986) ideal victim theory, whereby she examined whether certain characteristics were perceived to make victims more “worthy” of their victim status, thereby entitling them to better treatment from society, the media, and the criminal justice system. Mary’s honours thesis was completed under the supervision of Dr. Asher Flynn, who will also be her primary PhD supervisor. Mary’s doctoral thesis will examine the viability of introducing legal representation for victims in varying contexts within the prosecution process.
