Kevin Drakulich, Assistant Professor, has been named a W.E.B. DuBois Fellow by the National Institute of Justice. The program’s objective is to “to provide talented researchers with an opportunity, early in their career, to elevate independently generated research and ideas to the level of national discussion.” It includes funding for a project proposed titled “Implicit Racial Bias, Community Context, and Perceptions of Crime and Justice.” For more information, visit the NIJ’s website.
Kevin will also be receiving the “New Scholar Award” from the American Society of Criminology’s Division of People of Color and Crime at the society’s annual meeting in November. The award “recognizes an individual who is in the early stages of her or his career and has made significant recent contributions to the literature on race/ethnicity, crime, and justice.” For more information, please see the DPCC’s website.
