Crime and Punishment Workshop

Wed, 04/21/2010
6:30 PM, 165 Wallace Hall - RSVP requested
Event Category: 
By Invitation Only

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. 

We have a great line-up of speakers for our next workshop: 

      Michelle Phelps on the significance of probation

      Anna Haskins on education and parental incarceration

      Naomi Sugie on the crime boom among the elderly in Japan  

Each presenter will take about 15 minutes, with 15 minutes for discussion.
