Department: Sociology

I study the political economy of incarceration in the United States from Reconstruction to the present. I am particularly interested in how agrarian transitionsmigration, and struggles over land and labor have affected racial and class inequality in incarceration. I have also written on the causes and effects of environmental inequality and inequality in death from infectious disease.  Research interests: Inequality, Incarceration, Historical Sociology, Social Theory
