Justice & Multiculturalism Series

The Justice & Multiculturalism in the 21st Century  is an ongoing project of the School of Criminal Justice that explores the intersection of social and criminal justice in an increasingly diverse world. The focus of the project this year is civility and surveillance in public spaces, asking whether civility is dead and where to draw the line between civility and civil liberties, along with questions about the effects of constant surveillance in public spaces.


The program features a lecture series and a film series, which is co-sponsored by the New York State Writers Institute []. In addition, the web site has lists of resources in a variety of topics related to justice and multiculturalism, including terrorism, wrongful convictions, the death penalty and genocide.


The Libraries have many resources on justice and multiculturalism. Some books that grapple with this year’s topic of civility and surveillance are:
