1. Ciomek, Alexandra. "Examining the Differences between Police-Defined and Empirically Defined Co-Offending Groups" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, PA, Nov 14, 2017 <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1277833_index.html>

Abstract: Using social network analysis techniques, I identify the differences between police-defined and empirically defined “gangs” and show how the different boundaries of the co-offending groups affect predictions of individuals’ offending patterns. It is well established that peers can affect an individual’s delinquent or criminal behavior. Furthermore, gang membership influences delinquency beyond the effects of associating with delinquent peers (Battin et al. 1998). We therefore expect gang membership and co-offending patterns to be predictive of individual offending. In practice, gang membership is typically based on law enforcement assignment. But do police-defined groupings actually improve predictions of individual offending? Or do empirically defined groupings perform as better predictors? To answer these questions, I analyze a co-offending network of Boston gang members and those related to them based on arrests and Field Interrogation and Observation contacts with the police. Given the impact of criminal justice system involvement on the life course, as well as the added interest from law enforcement that comes with being a gang member, we must understand how current policing practices capture the true nature of offending at the individual level.

2. Brown, Elizabeth. "The Impact of the Shift Away from Defined Benefit Plans to Defined Contribution Plans in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, Westin St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco, CA, May 30, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p496617_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: My paper will examine the shift away from defined benefit plans towards defined contribution plans in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States and will compare the way it changed the relationship between workers and the financial industry. For example, workers' investments helped fuel the growth and volatility of these countries' stock markets. This movement required workers to have a greater financial literacy than prior generations had. Unfortunately, the educational systems in these countries left many workers financially illiterate. These factors played a role in the recent financial crisis and, if left unaddressed, may contribute to future financial crises.

3. de Velasco, Antonio. "Obama Time! Defining This Defining Moment" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 95th Annual Convention, Chicago Hilton & Towers, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p366250_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: How did Barack Obama define the “moment” of the 2008 election as one uniquely suited to his candidacy? Working from the classical notion of kairos, my paper investigates key passages from four major campaign speeches to answer to this question. The aim of my talk is to encourage debate on the relevance of kairos to contemporary public address scholarship and to bring attention to the artistry of Obama’s subtle treatment of time to manage otherwise conflicting trajectories in his rhetoric.

4. Henning, Kristin. "Defining the Lawyer-Self: Using Therapeutic Jurisprudence to Define the Lawyer’s Role and Aid the Child Client" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, FL, <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p229534_index.html>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: Because the attorney-client relationship is often the sole means by which a child may participate in the process of justice and earn credibility with others in the juvenile justice system, the attorney-client relationship warrants special care and attention. This paper considers ways in which therapeutic jurisprudence may inform and improve attorney-child relationships in juvenile court. Therapeutic jurisprudence recognizes considerable therapeutic value in attorney-client relationships that educate, empower, and validate the child. Therapeutically inspired attorney-client relationships not only yield immediate benefits of client-satisfaction and positive self-esteem, but may also promote effective long-term rehabilitation for children accused of crime.
