David Brotherton, Professor of Sociology at John Jay College, will discuss his new book, Youth Street Gangs: New Directions in Critical Criminology. Drawing on a wealth of acclaimed original research, Brotherton explores the socially layered practices of street gangs, including community movements, cultural projects and sites of social resistance. Central to Brotherton thesis is that gangs have been heavily pathologized in the last several decades. The book critically reviews gang theory and the geographical trajectories of streets gangs from New York and Puerto Rico to Europe, the Caribbean and South America, as well as state-sponsored reactions and the enabling role of orthodox criminology. In opposition to the dominant gang discourses, Brotherton proposes the development of a critical studies approach to gangs.
