Sociologist Alice Goffman, author of On The Run: Fugitive Life in an American City (The University of Chicago Press, 2014), will speak on Sept. 8 at 7:00 p.m. in Devlin Hall, 101. Listed among the best nonfiction books of 2014 by Publisher’s Weekly, On The Run examines the largely hidden world of warrants and surveillance that pervades daily life for young people in one poor neighborhood in Philadelphia. Goffman spent six years living in the neighborhood, observing the toll that pervasive policing and the presumption of criminality takes on families and young people’s futures. She is on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Listen to her TED Talk. Sponsor: Lowell Humanities Series.
