Lecture by Dr. Bridget Goosby, “Joy and Pain? Findings from a Study on Black Women Faculty’s Health, Support, and Well-being on the Tenure Track”

Lecture by Dr. Bridget Goosby, “Joy and Pain? Findings from a Study on Black Women Faculty’s Health, Support, and Well-being on the Tenure Track”

Dr. Bridget Goosby ’97
Professor of Sociology and co-director of the LifeHD Health Disparities Research Lab at the University of Texas at Austin; SU Alum, Sociology, 1997

Lecture Summary:
Black women comprise only 3% of the total tenure track faculty at universities across the country but make incredible intellectual contributions. Notably, their accomplishments do not protect them from the consequences of racial inequities, including health morbidities. However, in the presence of adversity these scholars not only survive, but in many cases thrive. Dr. Goosby will discuss findings from her mixed methods national study leveraging data from in-depth interviews and surveys with the purpose of elevating and celebrating Black women faculty while also shedding light on the tremendous challenges they experience in their careers as faculty.

‘From Drug Cartels to Criminal Enterprises: Government Crackdowns and the Evolution of Organized Crime in Mexico’

‘From Drug Cartels to Criminal Enterprises: Government Crackdowns and the Evolution of Organized Crime in Mexico’

Dr. Marco Alcocer, SU ’14
The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, Academy Scholar

Lecture Summary: Scholars have long argued that organized crime expansion is extremely difficult and rare since these groups rely on local networks and are unable to operate without some degree of state protection, which they often lack outside their historical strongholds. Yet, Latin America is currently experiencing significant criminal expansion. Why do criminal organizations expand beyond their historical strongholds and what explains where they go? Moreover, what are the implications for democratic accountability and citizen wellbeing? In this presentation I will show that government interventions in the drug market can create incentives for drug cartels to diversify their activities and expand to territories with lucrative new business opportunities. Cartels then seek to gain state protection when entering new political jurisdictions by exploiting electoral cycles to capture local politicians, allowing them to operate with impunity and worsening citizen well-being.
