Abstract: Metropolis: any large city or the chief; and sometimes capital city of a country, state, or region; or the mother city or parent state of a colony.

Gotham: journalistic shorthand for New York City or an English village, proverbial for the foolishness of its inhabitants.

While the definitions indicate broad urban experience, the comic book discourse linked to Metropolis and Gotham are informed and transformed by historic aspirations and apprehensions associated with city life in the United States. This paper explores the binary between triumph and failure associated with urbanism in superhero comic book narratives. More than the backdrop for fantastic adventures, Metropolis and Gotham are amalgamating fictive landscapes that act as spaces of emergent ideology continually reflecting splintered communal realities linked to conflicts linked to race, class, and gender in the city.

Abstract: The 1993 Russian constitution created a hybrid presidential-parliamentary system in which the president has the power to initiate and veto legislation and to issue normative decrees. We identify three sets of influences on the use of these law-making and decree-making powers by the president and parliament: those stemming from basic constitutional constraints on the use of decree-making power; those associated with long-term and short-term temporal considerations; and the effect of change in the policy distance between the president and the Duma. These factors shape the strategic context in which the two presidents and four Dumas since 1993 have operated. On the basis of a comprehensive examination of the record of laws and decrees promulgated from 1994 through 2004, we evaluate and largely confirm these propositions. A case study of the use of law and decree in setting policy in the area of land ownership illustrates the interplay of these forces.

Abstract: Bangladesh government has made a pivotal public commitment to end child marriage for girls below 18 years by 2041. This bold promise made in an international space has inspired girls’ rights activists in Bangladesh because this country has the highest rate of child brides in South Asia. Ironically, the activists’ optimism fell flat as the government subsequently offered to introduce an exception to a new law, child marriage prohibition act 2016, that will allow a girl-child to marry in “special circumstances.” Child marriage opponents claim that potential misuse of this exception may contribute to more girls to become child brides. By using a critical discourse analysis of the published news on the law-making and protests against this new law, I aim to explore how the public discourses on “special circumstances” and “girls’ best interest” on both sides of the isle are contested in the making and unmaking of child brides.

"Evidenced Based Decision Making in Iowa: Making Empirically Informed Placements and Supervision Decisions Using the LSI-R and Jesness Inventroy" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, Nov 13, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-26 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper will provide an overview of the importance of evidenced based decision making in the field of corrections. Specifically, the authors will examine how correctional practitioners can use an offender’s score on the Level of Service Inventory-Revised and the Jesness Inventory in conjunction with information on community supervision level and intervention services to make empirically informed decisions regarding correctional program placement. Evidence based decision making is important as it increases the likelihood that offenders respond positively to the interventions provided. The policy implications of this research are discussed.
