The RU Criminal Justice Society sponsored a lecture last Thursday by LaDonna M. Long, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Criminology at Capitol University in Columbus, OH. The lecture, entitled “A Critical Look at Intimate Partner Violence,” discussed difficulties facing African American women within intimate partner violence. Professor Long shared that extra barriers, including a general distrust of police and distrust of the ways in which the criminal justice system treats African American men, lead to under-reporting crimes, and then subsequently, to a higher prevalence of repeated physical abuse. Professor Long is a candidate for the position of Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at RU.
The Roosevelt community is invited to presentations by two candidates for the position of Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice.
Professor LaDonna M. Long will present “A Critical Look at Intimate Partner Violence” on Thursday, February 10, at 4 p.m. in the Gage Gallery, Gage Building, first floor. The next day, Professor Adam Messinger will present a lecture entitled “Rape or Sex?” on Friday, February 11, at 11 a.m, in the Gage Building, third floor commons.
