Scarlet Speakers in the heart of your home

Join Lisa L. Miller, professor of political science, School of Arts and Sciences, for a discussion on Race, Violence, and the Failed American State.

Miller’s research interests are in law and constitutions, racial inequality, violent crime and criminal justice, democratic accountability and social policy. Her most recent book, The Myth of Mob Rule: Violent Crime and Democratic Politics, explores the politics of crime and punishment cross-nationally.

Miller is currently working on two book projects, one on U.S. constitutional myths, and the other on the political origins of lethal violence in the Americas.
