Barkan, Glover featured in BDN editorial on violence in America
The Bangor Daily News sought input from Maine experts in sociology, politics and criminology who are members of the Maine Scholars Strategy Network for an editorial about violence in America. The BDN asked the experts, “Is America becoming more violent? Divided? How do we and America remain resilient in the face of such violence and division?” The editorial featured responses from Steven Barkan, a sociology professor at the University of Maine and author of “Criminology: A Sociological Understanding,” and Robert Glover, an associate professor of honors and political science at UMaine.
