"Waste, Violence and Injustice" is the conference theme for this year's Justice Studies Association (JSA) annual conference. The conference will be held in Chicago, IL from May 28 - 30, 2020. The association welcomes paper proposals and proposals for panels. Please direct your proposal to JSAConference2020@gmail.com by March 1.
This year's conference theme speaks to the intersections of violence and waste as it pertains to social inequality and the criminal justice system. JSA welcomes papers or presentations that focus on a wide variety of topics, including those addressing environmental justice; mass incarceration and prisoner rights; social inequality; state and corporate crime; the treatment of immigrants; restorative justice and transformative justice; and theoretical work and/or empirical work about crime, justice, or the law. This list is not exhaustive, and we welcome papers from a variety of academic disciplines. We also welcome presentations from people and organizations outside of academia.
