Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to invite you to join a virtual network of scholars and practitioners interested in the production, management and consumption of judicial images. This is an initiative supported by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The aim of the project is to promote dialogue, understanding, future research and collaboration amongst stakeholders about the production, management and consumption of judicial images. To achieve this we are building a network of experts from across disciplines and fields of practice including academics, members of the judiciary, journalists, script writers, film makers, artists, architects and costume makers.

We will be hosting a range of ‘live’ events in London; 3 workshops and a public lecture. The network’s website will support these events. The address is,  You can find out more about the dates and themes of the workshops on the network’s website,

The website will play a key role in promoting interest in ‘judicial images’, encouraging research and image making, facilitating networking and as a research, teaching and learning resource. These goals will be achieved in a variety of ways.

·        As the workshops take place the website will include extracts from the workshops, copies of papers and presentations.

·        The site has a number of virtual exhibitions showcasing and exploring judicial visual images. We hope to expand the range of virtual exhibitions.

·        Another goal is to make the website an essential resource of materials engaging with and relevant to anyone interested in ‘judicial images’. This resource will be multi-disciplinary.

·        Educational and teaching resources will also be made available through the site.

·        Last but by no means least, the website offers a platform to draw attention to related events and activities.
