Crime and Punishment Workshop

Frank Zimring, UC-Berkeley School of Law: New York City's Crime Decline

Wed, 10/13/2010
6:30 PM
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. 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 October 13 will feature Frank Zimring, the William G. Simon Professor of Law and Wolfen Distinguished Scholar at the University of California Berkeley School of Law, to discuss "New York City's Crime Decline".
