Woodruff Library Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference Speaker/Presenter: Carla Shedd (Assistant Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Columbia University) Cost: Free Registration / R.S.V.P. link: https://form.jotform.com/53145385695162 Contact Name: Anita Spencer Stevens Contact Email: jwji@emory.edu Link: www.jwji.emory.edu Carla Shedd (Assistant Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Columbia University) will present a talk examining how Chicago’s most vulnerable residents navigate their neighborhoods, assess their life chances, and reconcile their encounters with the law. Shedd’s analysis relies on both quantitative and qualitative data to argue that adolescents’ worldviews are profoundly influenced by encounters with law enforcement, particularly while traveling to school and during school hours. Teens often travel long distances to attend school and, due to Chicago’s segregated and highly unequal neighborhoods, their journey may involve crossing class, race, and gang lines. She finds that the disadvantaged teens who traverse these boundaries daily develop a keen “perception of injustice,” or the recognition that their economic and educational opportunities are restricted by their place in our nation's social hierarchy. Her talk will also present findings from related to the use and impact of metal detectors, surveillance cameras, and pat-downs at certain Chicago schools. Along with police procedures like stop-and-frisk in their neighborhoods, these prison-like practices in their schools lead to distrust of authority and feelings of powerlessness among the adolescents who also experience mistreatment either firsthand or vicariously. By amplifying the oft-ignored voices of marginalized adolescents, this work opens a door onto a generation whose perceptions and experiences reflect the growing inequalities in contemporary society. *Books will be available for purchase during and after the speaker presentation.* + Woodruff Library, Jones Room (RM 311) Campus Events
