Dr Henry Yeomans
Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice
I obtained a PhD from the University of Plymouth and began lecturing at the University of Leeds in September 2011.
Scholarly and Research Interests
Generally speaking, I am interested in historical criminology and criminological theory. More specifically, my research relates to alcohol. I am interested in the means through which drink and drinking come to be understood and regulated in contemporary society.
I am currently teaching on the modules:
- Criminological Research Methods
- Understanding Crime
- Youth Crime and Justice.
I am interested in supervising PhDs relating to alcohol, drinking or historical criminology more generally.
