Ruth Peterson will present on race and neighborhood crime trends at Ohio Wesleyan University on Wednesday night.
Ruth D. Peterson, Ph.D., a retired sociology professor and faculty member at The Ohio State University’s Criminal Justice Research Center, will discuss “Race and Neighborhood Crime in U.S. Urban Areas” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21, in Ohio Wesleyan University’s Phillips Hall Auditorium in historic downtown Delaware, Ohio.
Peterson will present Ohio Wesleyan’s 2012 Butler A. Jones Lectureship on Race and Society, sponsored by the OWU Department of Sociology. The event is free and open to the public.
For much of the past 20 years, Peterson has collaborated with Lauren J. Krivo, Ph.D., of Rutgers University to research crime rates, trying to account for differences across various race-ethnic groups and across communities of different colors.
Peterson and Krivo’s 2010 book, “Divergent Social Worlds: Neighborhood Crime and the Racial-Spatial Divide,” focuses on their research, telling the story of neighborhood crime as an outgrowth of racialized social structure in U.S. urban areas. Peterson’s talk will provide an overview of the book’s primary findings.
