My name is Jennifer Dawn Carlson, and I am a graduate of University of California Berkeley’s Department of Sociology. I will be joining the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto as an Assistant Professor in 2013.
My interests include gender, criminology, political sociology and social theory. My book, Clinging to their guns? The New Politics of Gun Carry in Everyday Life” (under contract at Oxford University Press), analyzes gun politics as a politics of policing and examines the reproduction of anti-statist narratives in the US.
One of my articles from this project recently won the “2012 Best Graduate Student Paper Award” from the American Society of Criminology’s Division on Critical Criminology.
