Current Research, Publications and Creative Activity
Brett Burkhardt, assistant professor of sociology, published a new article, “Where Have All the (White and Hispanic) Inmates Gone? Comparing the Racial Composition of Private and Public Adult Correctional Facilities,” in the journal Race and Justice. Based on analysis of all American adult corrections facilities in 2005, the article finds that Hispanic inmates are overrepresented (and White inmates underrepresented) in privately operated prisons. Burkhardt’s research was recently covered on NPR’s “Codeswitch.”
