Department of Sociology Spring 2019 Colloquium Series
Featuring Jennifer Carlson, assistant professor of sociology, University of Arizona
The talks focus on police attitudes on gun policy, challenging the Weberian assumption that states and state agents monopolize legitimate violence. It suggests an integrated model of policing that explains how masculinity and race intersect in police work not just to produce criminalization but also impunity.
