6:30 PM

The Crime and Punishment workshop draws together an interdisciplinary group of scholars-- from sociology, political science, psychology, philosophy, and law-- to discuss a range of topics related to crime, delinquency, social control, and the philosophy and politics of punishment. The workshop meets approximately once a month on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 (dinner will be served). Meetings will alternate in format, including a mixture of lectures by visiting faculty, presentations by internal faculty and graduate students, and discussions of "half-baked" research ideas.

The session on March 23 will feature Anne Piehl, Visiting Research Scholar, Economics and the Industrial Relations Section and Visiting Associate Professor of Economics, Princeton and Associate Professor of Economics & Program in Criminal Justice at Rutgers University, to discuss: "Location, Location, Location: The Impact of Guideline Grid Location on the Value of Sentencing."
