Dr. Nicole Kaufman, Assistant Professor of Sociology, presented a paper on “Governing through Collaboration: Governing through Partnerships: Ohio’s Church-State Relationships in Drug and Alcohol Policy,” at the annual meeting of The American Society of Criminology in Philadelphia in November.

The theme for this year’s conference was Crime, Legitimacy and Reform: Fifty Years after the President’s Commission.

Kaufman presented research on the changing rhetoric and forms of governance occurring in collaborations between governmental agencies and religious organizations that have been focused on managing drug and alcohol treatment and prevention in Ohio.

She also organized a panel on values in the criminal justice system and served on an author-meets-critics panel on the book The Penal Voluntary Sector by Phillipa Tomczak.

The American Society of Criminology is an international organization whose members pursue scholarly, scientific, and professional knowledge concerning the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency.

The society’s objectives are to encourage the exchange, in a multidisciplinary setting, of those engaged in research, teaching, and practice so as to foster criminological scholarship, and to serve as a forum for the dissemination of criminological knowledge. Membership includes students, practitioners, and academicians from the many fields of criminal justice and criminology.
