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. Participants meet approximately four times per semester (roughly once a month) 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  Also mention in your e-mail if you are interested in presenting preliminary or polished work during the semester.

Our first session will feature Lisa Miller, associate professor of political science at Rutgers University. She will speak on her project on political federalism and its implications for racial inequality in the criminal justice system.
