Abstract: In 2010 the US Supreme Court ruled in U.S. v. Stevens that 18 USC § 48, a law that prohibited the creation, sales, or possession of depictions of animal cruelty, was unconstitutional. The federal law was overbroad and content-oriented thus failing the strict scrutiny test. In its decision, the Court paralleled the legal reasoning it used in 2002 in Ashcroft vs. Free Speech Coalition when it struck down portions of the Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996. This paper analyzes Stevens within the context of the Ashcroft decision in both the majority and dissenting opinions. The majority and dissenting Justices in both decisions repeatedly referred to the Court’s previous Miller v. California and New York v. Ferber opinions to support their perspectives. The Stevens and Ashcroft cases showed that the Court is unlikely to create a new category of unprotected speech from a federal law unless that law meets the strict scrutiny test for speech.

Publication Type: Individual Paper
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: LWOP has remained mostly insulated from the processes of individualized sentencing and the memorializations of judgment, mercy, and error that have defined the legal and cultural production of death sentences in the US in the last 50 years. The paper explores the legal and political space for challenging and eroding this insularity in the aftermath of Miller v. Alabama [2012] and Montgomery v. Louisiana [2016]. Montgomery retroactively granted every juvenile under a LWOP sentence the opportunity to demonstrate “transient immaturity” versus “irreparable corruption” to establish their ineligibility for a sentence of LWOP. The operationalization of contexts of meaningful hope for release and the evidential quandaries of retrospectively looking for hope of change in individual juvenile offenders has facilitated a witnessing of some of the thorniest issues in penology and penal policy. The paper charts the repertoire of progressive and regressive responses to these demands and maps the cultural and penological narratives of hope and hopelessness that this judicial space for challenging juvenile LWOPworthiness has opened up. The discussion reflects on these developments in the context of the politics of death penalty reform and abolition and considers the comparative role of hope in penal and cultural narratives and performances of punishment.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The life and writings of journalist and amateur sinologist V. V. Korsakov offer an interesting window into the Russian imperial experience during the height of Russian expansion in Northeast Asia. While staff physician at the Russian Embassy in Beijing he wrote extensively about the peoples and culture of China, as well as his experiences during the Boxer Uprising of 1900 and Russo-Japanese War in a series of memoirs and articles published in the newspapers and thick journals of St. Petersburg. Korsakov gave the Russian reader exciting firsthand accounts of the Boxer siege of Beijing and the Japanese attack on Port Arthur, but, moreover, his sympathetic descriptions of the Chinese people and Russia’s role in their affairs pointed toward a potentially bright future for the region with Russia as its guardian.
