Description

The Summer Research Institute is a component of the Racial Democracy, Crime and Justice Network (RDCJN). The purpose of the RDCJN is to collectively undertake research and related initiatives geared to exploring the implications of crime and justice processing for democratic participation. This focus is informed by currents of history, cutting-edge crime and justice research, unfolding world events, and the interests and engagements of networks participants. Our specific objectives are twofold: (1) advancing research on issues of citizenship and democratic participation at the intersection of race, crime, and justice; and (2) promoting racial/ethnic democratization of academe by supporting junior scholars of color (racial/ethnic minorities) in advancing their academic careers. Our experiences indicate that young scholars of color encounter dilemmas, challenges and barriers that complicate their promotion in the academy, and retard advances in knowledge that can come from the perspectives on race, crime and justice that these scholars potentially offer. The purpose of the Summer Research Institute (SRI) is to facilitate the success of junior faculty and help broaden participation in academia.  The application to the 2016 Summer Research Institute can be found here:  https://cjrc.osu.edu/sri/apply-sri
