Professor Stefan Machura visits the University of East of Finland
Professor Stefan Machura recently visited the University of East of Finland, Joensuu campus with support from the EU’s Erasmus programme.
There is a longstanding exchange of students and staff between the social science departments at Bangor and Joensuu. This was the third such visit for Professor Machura, who delivered a module on “Crime and the Law in the Media” to students at the Finish institution.
They were very interested in the topic and took note of crime policies in the UK, as well as of the way the British media report issues of crime. The first and the third session were devoted to an introduction into Hollywood law films and American TV lawyer series.
The Joensuu campus is located in North Carelia Province, amidst stunning Scandinavian landscape. It is comparable to Bangor University in terms of the size of both the city and university. Classes are in English, so exchange students from Bangor find lectures and seminars straightforward.
