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 February 16 will feature Laurie Krivo, Department of Sociology, Rutgers University, to discuss: "Race, Place, and Neighborhood Criminal Inequality"
