Professor Joshua Page arriving in spring 2007

Joshua Page will receive his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 2006 and join our faculty in the Spring of 2007 after completing research on prison officer unions in New York. His dissertation, "The Toughest Beat: Prison Officer Unionization, Crime Victims, and the Politics of Punishment in California," supervised by Loic Wacquant, examines the factors that contributed to the remarkable success of the prison officers' unionization in California over the last three decades. Most recently, he examined the political rhetoric around federal legislation that denied Pell Grants to incarcerated individuals. This paper was published in Punishment and Society. Other research involves a life history analysis of the life and writing of Edward Bunker and a cross-national comparative study of victim's rights groups.
