Conference Theme: The Politics and Practice of Exclusion

Keynote Address by Gregg Barak, Eastern Michigan University

FEBRUARY 3, 2011      8:30am-4pm    

Conference meeting space TBA (at or near Four Seasons Hotel)


The Department of Sociology--Criminology & Justice Studies at California State University San Marcos, the School of Public Affairs at San Diego State University, and the School of Urban and Public Affairs University of Texas-Arlington will host a critical criminology & justice studies mini-conference Thursday, February 3, 2011, in Vancouver, BC.  This day-long event is the third in a conference series viewed as a grassroots effort to cultivate a critical criminology and justice studies collective in the western region of North America.  This year’s program focuses on the politics and practice of exclusion -- broadly examined from immigration and other critical and justice-centered perspectives.    

The 8:30am-4pm event immediately precedes the opening reception for the Western Society of Criminology's annual meeting (Feb. 3-5) at the Four Seasons Hotel.  Currently, we are still negotiating for a good and affordable conference space and you can rest assured we will be either at or very near the WSC conference site.  We encourage you to participate in both conferences but please note that registration and submissions for the two conferences are independent processes.

Email abstracts (300 words or less) to by October 29, 2010.  Please include full contact information and university/organization affiliation with your email submission.

Registration Fee – Faculty/Non-student: $40.00 (includes morning coffee service, meeting space, student support)
Students are encouraged to attend and are not charged a registration fee.
