Please join Bruce Western, the Bryce Professor of Sociology and Social Justice and Co-Director of the Justice Lab at Columbia University, for a discussion about the empirical and ethical challenges of mass incarceration. He is Principal Investigator of the Square One Project to re-imagine the foundations of criminal justice policy in America, and author of the recent book, Homeward: Life in the Year After Prison. At this program, he will also reflect on his noteworthy 2010 Daedalus article, “Incarceration and Social Inequality,” and what has and has not changed one decade later.
