To encourage innovation and scholarship, the Social Justice Institute has established a Social Justice Research Fellowship Program that, through competitive grants, funds faculty and student research that advances social justice work, from humanistic inquiry to action research.
Previous grants have supported proposals that focus on issues that are both local and global. From youth development to elderly care; from political systems to individual recovery efforts, these projects have represented the same diversity as their recipients. The Social Justice Institute is proud to support faculty, graduate and undergraduate research over the years.
The following are our Faculty Fellows over the past decade.
History of Imprisonment in Ohio
Tim Black, Professor of Sociology
Vivian Pryor and Paola Van der Linden Costello, Undergraduate Students
Expected outcomes: a complete history of the creation of prisons and jails in Ohio, maps of the locations of these facilities over time, the demographic changes in the prison population over time, and the changes in types of crimes resulting in incarceration in jails and prisons across time. Additionally, expected to identify the key legislative policies that are related to these changes and to visually record them in our historical trajectories and maps.
