Spring Crime and Punishment Workshops scheduled

The Crime and Punishment workshop draws together an interdisciplinary group of scholars-- from sociology, political science, psychology, philosophy, economics and law-- to discuss a range of topics related to crime, delinquency, social control, and the philosophy and politics of punishment.

Participants meet approximately once a month, on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. for dinner and discussion. Meetings will alternate in format, including a mixture of internal faculty presentations, "mini-presentations" by graduate students and others working through preliminary research ideas, lectures by visiting faculty, and discussions of recent published research.

Regular membership encouraged.  If you would like to be included, e-mail Devah Pager at
