Criminalization and the Other
This event will reflect on the history and impact of the criminalization of people who are culturally deemed the “other” at any given time in relation to the criminal justice system. 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. She will also discuss the connections between this history and the modern-day criminal justice system.

This event is part of the 2021-22 Harriet & Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center (KHC) and National Endowment for the Humanities Colloquium entitled, “Incarceration, Transformation & Paths to Liberation during the Holocaust and Beyond.”

Oct 27, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
