  • Police Crime: The Criminal Behavior of Sworn Law Enforcement Officers
    • Authors: Philip Matthew Stinson
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: This essay examines the criminological conceptualizations and research on police crime, that is, the criminal behavior of sworn law enforcement officers. It starts with an overview of the conceptualization of police crime as it relates to organizational and scholarly perspectives of social deviance. Police deviance is often conceptualized to include various misconduct, corruption, and/or crime committed by police organizations and police officers. This essay focuses on police crime resulting in the arrest of a sworn law enforcement officer and is organized within a conceptual framework that incorporates five types of police crime: sex‐related police crime, alcohol‐related police crime, drug‐related police crime, violence‐related police crime, and profit‐motivated police crime.

  • The Hidden Side of Zero Tolerance Policies: The African American
    • Authors: Charles Bell
      Pages: 14 - 22
      Abstract: Several papers have documented the disproportionate representation of African Americans in school discipline and incarceration settings as a result of zero tolerance policies. In 2009, a federal study of the Chicago Public School system found African American boys represented 23 percent of the school age population, 44 percent of students who were suspended, and 61 percent of students who were expelled within the 2007 school year. Twenty years after the implementation of the Anti‐Drug Abuse Acts of 1986 and 1988, studies show African Americans comprised a startling 74 percent of those incarcerated for drug offenses despite being only 15 percent of America's drug users. Despite overwhelming evidence that suggests African Americans are adversely affected by zero tolerance policies, African American perceptions of zero tolerance policies remain relatively hidden in the literature. The current review seeks to explore a seemingly bidirectional process that involves how zero tolerance impacts African Americans and how African Americans perceive zero tolerance policies.

  • Explaining Attitudes toward Immigrants and Immigration Policy: A Review of
           the Theoretical Literature
    • Authors: Justin Allen Berg
      Pages: 23 - 34
      Abstract: In the research literature on immigration attitudes, there are a number of theories that explain why individuals hold positive or negative opinions of certain immigrant groups and immigration policies. In this review of the literature, the theories are summarized into five categories: personal and social identity, self and group interest, cultural values and beliefs, social interaction, and multilevel theories. The majority of the theories offer explanations that favor one causal direction, focus on social psychology or the social structural environment, and assume that effects are additive rather than interactive. It is argued in this review that scholars would benefit by using multilevel theories, such as group position theory and intersectionality, in order to extend their explanatory reach past the theoretical standards and, in doing so, be able to better examine some understudied but important questions, such as why individuals often hold pro‐ and anti‐immigrant opinions simultaneously. Multilevel theories have the potential to offer a nuanced understanding of immigration attitudes.

  • “[L]abels of Themselves Condition Our Perceptions”: The DSM
           and the Diagnostic Sign of Schizophrenia
    • Authors: Michael J. Flexer
      Pages: 35 - 48
      Abstract: The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) has been partitioning mental illnesses into discrete disease entities for over 60 years. The diagnostic class of schizophrenia has undergone several different labels and some profound changes to its criteria over all these iterations. In trying to develop the least‐imperfect pragmatic description, the DSM has had to make several assumptions about the disease, and over the various iterations several critics – from within and without psychiatry – have increasingly felt that the APA have accepted their own assumptions as truth, creating a self‐justifying and self‐perpetuating ideology of schizophrenia. The latest edition, DSM‐5, has incorporated some of this criticism, but it is unclear whether the dominant ideology of the diagnostic labels will be over‐turned or will simply incorporate this challenge to its authority into its own “continuity myth” of ever‐improving diagnostic criteria.

  • Neuroscience and Education – an Incompatible Relationship
    • Authors: Alka Sehgal Cuthbert
      Pages: 49 - 61
      Abstract: To date, there has been little opposition to the growing influence of cognitive neuroscience in education from the education profession itself. However there is growing criticism from the fields of psychology and philosophy. This paper aims to summarize the central arguments found in literature critical of the claims made by cognitive neuroscientists who advocate its potential to improve education. The paper is organized around three sections which draw together assessments from psychology, philosophy and sociology of education. The first, “Brain, Mind and Culture,” lays out the general argument against neuro‐education and evaluates two common assumptions made by advocates of neuro‐education: that there is a causal relationship between brain and mind and that learning is a central tenet of education. The second section, “Promises and Problems,” critically considers an example of neuro‐educational research and then goes on to discuss how neuro‐education has detrimental consequences for two necessary conditions of liberal subject‐based education; disciplinarity and pedagogic authority. The final section, “Discourses of Risk, Vulnerability and Optimal Outcomes,” considers wider sociological literature to locate neuro‐education within its contemporary cultural context. The paper concludes with a summary of the main philosophical and moral objections to neuro‐education.

  • Happiness Research: A Review of Critiques
    • Authors: Ashley Frawley
      Pages: 62 - 77
      Abstract: In the short decades since the introduction of positive psychology instigated broader interdisciplinary research, interest in happiness has been growing in academia, the media and public policy. Numerous critiques of these developments have been forwarded from a variety of theoretical and disciplinary traditions. This article discusses three such criticisms: the culture‐bound and normative character of happiness, ‘bad science’ and scientism, and diminished subjectivity and individualisation. It is argued that criticism, particularly internal criticism, evidences the maturity of the field. However, the depth of some critiques may also indicate that interest in happiness is bound with broader cultural preoccupations and is likely to be superseded.

  • Race, Gender, Hollywood: Representation in Cultural Production and Digital
           Media's Potential for Change
    • Authors: Maryann Erigha
      Pages: 78 - 89
      Abstract: Since its inception, the Hollywood industry has played an instrumental role in the mass dissemination of popular culture, both within the United States and globally. Yet, White men have almost exclusively created the narratives and myths that comprise Hollywood cultural production, while narratives by women and racial/ethnic minorities are fewer and less prominent. This article gives an overview of current research on racial and gender inequality in representation in the production of Hollywood film and television in the United States, with a focus on the contemporary era. Research on Hollywood cultural production points to a problematic trend of disadvantages in opportunities and outcomes facing women and racial/ethnic minorities, leading to the prevalence of stereotypes and a lack of diversity on‐screen. However, transformations in technology that alter the production and dissemination of media present the possibility of decreasing inequality for women and racial/ethnic minorities.
