After Assistant Dean, Dr Fiona Reid saw her article titled ‘Haunted by dreams of the trenches’ feature in BBC’s Armistice Centenary issue of their History Magazine, another Newman academic has also seen their work published in the same magazine.

Dr John Moore, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at Newman University, saw his article titled ‘What has been ailing Britain’s prisons?’ also feature within the Centenary issue. Within his article Dr Moore talks of the problems facing prisons and the punishments which prisoners have historically faced, as well as how the prison system works today.

From 1984 to 1990 Dr Moore worked at Hargrave House, an ex-prisoners housing group set up by PROP, the prisoners’ rights group. In 1990 he was the founding Director of Penrose Housing Association and where he developed a range of award-winning projects, including schemes for women ex-prisoners and mentally disordered offenders. Between 2000 and 2008 he worked as a freelance consultant for a range of voluntary sector, local government and criminal justice organisations and in various posts for the think tank Transform Drug Policy Foundation before making the transition to work within the Higher Education field.

Dr Moore has previously seen his work published in many leading Criminology journals. His latest article can be seen in BBC History’s Armistice Centenary issue.
