Where:

Room 205

Event Description:

Please join us in room 205 of Falvey Memorial Library on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 2:30 p.m. for a Scholarship@Villanova lecture featuring Jill A. McCorkel, PhD, associate professor, Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice. Dr. McCorkel will be talking about her recently published book, Breaking Women: Gender, Race and the New Politics of Imprisonment. Dr. McCorkel will discuss how her four years of research in a major U.S. women’s prison helped her to uncover the reasons tougher drug policies have so greatly affected those incarcerated there, and how the very nature of punishment in women’s detention centers has been deeply altered as a result.

This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, the Department of Sociology & Criminology, the Gender and Women's Studies Program, and the Center for Peace and Justice Education, is free and open to the public.
