Teaching Fellow in Criminology, University of Leicester
Amy Clarke is a Teaching Fellow in the School of Criminology, University of Leicester. She has multi-disciplinary interests in the areas of hate crime, structural racism, white privilege, immigration, asylum, social mobility and social integration. Amy also teaches on a broad range of criminological modules and plays an active role in the School's Equalities, Diversity and Inclusivity Committee - with a focus on improving the student experience for Black, Asian and ethnic minority students.
