Summary

This talk with discuss the end of transportation of convicts to Australia, and the rise of long term imprisonment in England, through the establishment of the convict prison system in the mid-1850s.

It will illuminate both the operation of the system and the experiences of those who endured a sentence of penal servitude and release on license (origins of our current parole system). The talk will draw on extensive research which has reconstructed the lives of 650 convict prisoners from cradle to grave.

Dr Helen Johnston is a Reader in Criminology at the University of Hull, and has published extensively on the history of prisons and punishment.
