Dr Nicola Harding

Lecturer in Criminology

Nicola Harding

Bowland North



PhD supervision

I am particularly interested in PhD projects that make use of creative or co-produced methods, involve lived experience, or focus on areas such as fraud and financial crime, women, organised crime and economic harms.

Research Interests

  • Feminist Criminology
  • Fraud and financial crime/ economic harms.
  • Lived experiences of contact with the Criminal Justice System
  • Creative, participatory and narrative methodology. 



Nicola Harding is a Lecturer in Criminology at Lancaster University. She has previously worked at Leeds Trinity University and Manchester Metropolitan University, where she is completing her PhD. Nicola gained a First Class Honours degree in Sociology and Criminology at Keele University, before obtaining a Masters in Criminology and Criminal Justice, also at Keele University, which was awarded with distinction in 2015.  Nicola's broad research interests include women and social control, critical approaches to community punishment, understanding lived experiences of the criminal justice system, alongside creative forms of qualitative research.
