By Invitation Only

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 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.

The Workshop on Tuesday, March 13 will feature Leslie Paik, assistant professor of sociology at City College of New York, to discuss: "Discretionary Justice: Looking Inside a Juvenile Drug Court."

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