Ethan Rogers, research coordinator in the PPC’s Crime and Justice Policy Research Program, presented at the 73rd annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology Nov. 15-18 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The theme of the meeting was “Crime, Legitimacy and Reform: Fifty Years after the President’s Commission.”

Rogers presented “Bones of Contention: Disputes of Offenders and Non-Offenders,” based on a paper he wrote with co-authors Mark Berg, director of the PPC’s Crime and Justice Policy Research Program and associate professor in the Department of Sociology in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Richard Felson, professor of criminology and sociology at Pennsylvania State University.

The American Society of Criminology is an international organization whose members pursue scholarly, scientific, and professional knowledge concerning the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency.

The Society's objectives are to encourage the exchange, in a multidisciplinary setting, of those engaged in research, teaching, and practice so as to foster criminological scholarship, and to serve as a forum for the dissemination of criminological knowledge. Our membership includes students, practitioners, and academicians from the many fields of criminal justice and criminology.
