Dies Veneris Saturnique Universitate Liverpoolense aderam quod Symposium Britannicum Historiographorum Criminalium eveniebat. Octoginta homines convenerunt causa amiciter disceptandi. Complures praesentationes exhibuerunt quae spectatores delectaverunt. De damnatis et carceribus et judiciis et lictoribus et puellis puerisque sceleratis et furibus et sicariis colloquebamur. Concessum adpellavi de arte qua lictores Cumbrienses ebrios adtractarent. Parlamentum ultimum maxime intererat quod omnes confabulantur de auctoribus televisonis qui historiographos arcessant ad cogitationes tradendos. Die Veneris vesperi in taberna Graeca dapsile cenavimus. Symposium valde est convivialis et sapiens et eruditum.
Orationes Arcessandae: the Call for Papers.
On Friday and Saturday I was at the University of Liverpool for the British Crime Historians’ Symposium. Eighty people met for friendly discussion. Several gave presentations which pleased the audience. We were conversing about convicts, prisons, courts, the police, child offenders, thieves and murderers. I addressed the meeting on the topic of how the police in Cumbria used to deal with drunks. The final round table session was very interesting because there was a general discussion about TV productions who call upon historians to share their expertise. On Friday evening we dined splendidly in a Greek restaurant. The Symposium certainly was convivial, intelligent and erudite.
