Crime and Punishment Workshop

The study of crime and punishment has always held a prominent place in the social sciences and professional schools at the University of Chicago. This workshop carries on this tradition. Providing an interdisciplinary forum for faculty and graduate students to present current research, it allows participants to contribute to the development of new understandings of crime and society's response to crime. Sponsored by faculty and the Law School, it hosts a lively and interactive series of presentations covering such topics as incarceration, social disorganization, the geography of crime, street gangs, and state interventions.

Since 2009-10, this Workshop has been consolidated into the Public Law and Legal Theory Workshop.
