friday public sociology talk in indiana, plus tuesday workshop
i'm blogging lightly until i can get some work back to eager coauthors, but wanted to invite folks to a couple talks next week.
on friday the 23rd, i'm really looking forward to visiting indiana university. IU grads seem to be off the charts in terms of creativity and skills, so i'll see what i can learn about their program. i'm doing a talk on "public criminologies and social research" as part of their public sociology workshop:

on tuesday the 20th, i'll be giving a talk in my department's sociology workshop (with mike vuolo, ebony ruhland, hilary whitham, and sarah lageson). we're workshopping a paper just submitted for the american sociological association meetings on how a misdemeanor arrest record affects employability. most of the talk will focus on our (part one) experimental results, but we'll also discuss our new (part two) interviews with employers.
