We are now well into the busy swing of the fall semester and ISPS is its usual beehive of activity. What’s coming out of that hive is high-quality publications, starting with new sociology star Joscha Legewie’s pathbreaking paper on how violence can trigger police bias. More on police from former grad policy fellow Michael Sierra-Arévalo and from current fellow Philip McHarris, who “follows the money” that was spent as part of the Clinton crime bill of the 1990s. Finally, Adam Chekroud has been recognized again for his innovative health startup, this time by the New York Digital Accelerator.
