Victor Rios, Ph.D., an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, will present his research on juvenile justice, masculinity, race, and crime. He has published widely in these areas, including the 2011 book, Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys (NYU Press). Based on three years of field research and in-depth interviews with young men in Oakland, CA, Rios analyzed how juvenile crime policies and criminalization affect the everyday lives of urban youth. Rios has received numerous awards, including the 2010 New Scholar Award From American Society of Criminology and the 2011 Harold J. Plous award at UCSB. His book Punished received the 2012 Best Book Award, Latino/a Sociology Section, presented by the American Sociological Association.
