Sydney Law School Staff Spotlight Videos
9 April 2014
Our Staff Spotlight Video Series continues with our expert in Criminology, Criminal Law and Hate Crime, Professor Gail Mason.
This new initiative showcases the Law School’s individual staff members, their research interests and areas of expertise.
“It’s an opportunity for Sydney Law School to engage with new audiences and reconnect with our established ones, including current students and alumni,” said the Dean, Professor Joellen Riley.
“As the Law is diverse and specialised, so too are the academic pursuits of our Faculty.
“The videos outline how each academic staff member informs and enhances our teaching and research activities.”
Gail’s research centres on crime, social justice and exclusion, particularly: racist and homophobic violence; hate crime law and punishment; and the legal construction of hatred.
She is co-ordinator of the Australian Hate Crime Network and Chief Investigator on the ARC funded Hate Crime Law and Justice Project which is undertaking an international comparison of hate crime laws.
She is also involved in funded research exploring cyber-racism, the policing of prejudice motivated crime and resilience amongst former-refugee communities in Australia.
A new video will be released each week during April and May and will be hosted on Sydney Law School’s YouTube Channel.
