War on Drugs in Urban and Suburban Locations
Presenter: Dr. Matt Lassiter, History and Urban and Regional Planning, U-M
Dr Lassiter will present his article from an excerpted chapter about 'juvenile delinquency' and the federal and state declarations of war on narcotics during the 1950s from his book project, The Suburban Crisis: Crime, Drugs, and the Lost Innocence of Middle-Class America.
These sessions are a response to requests from faculty and students to learn more about what’s going on in the field in an informal environment. We hope this can inspire emergent thoughts and connections that will inform our scholarship. If you have research you would like to present, or a provocative article you would like to discuss, please speak with Larissa Larsen, David Weinreich, or Carla Kayanan.
