Duration   1h

The contemporary criminal justice system has historical connections to the criminalization of people who are culturally deemed the “other.” Join Dr. Celia Sporer, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Queensborough Community College at the City University of New York, for a discussion about the institutionalization of criminality based on social identity. Dr. Sporer will examine the process and implications of the criminalization of Jewishness in Nazi Germany, as well as reflect upon on the marginalization/exclusion of other groups resulting in their criminalization during different time periods and places.
