Please join us on November 20th for our autumn quarter Faculty Research Fellows Chautauqua. This event will feature 2020-2021 fellow Professor Matthew Clair (Sociology) speaking about his recent book Privilege and Punishment: How Race and Class Matter in Criminal Court in conversation with Professor Subini Annamma (Education) and Professor Richard Banks (Law School).
The number of Americans arrested, brought to court, and incarcerated has skyrocketed in recent decades. Criminal defendants come from all races and economic walks of life, but they experience punishment in vastly different ways. Privilege and Punishment examines how racial and class inequalities are embedded in the attorney-client relationship, providing a devastating portrait of inequality and injustice within and beyond the criminal courts.
We look forward to seeing you there!
