Professor Drakulich’s recent work addresses three interrelated questions. The first question concerns social processes related to crime and its consequences across space—and in particular across neighborhoods and communities. A second line of research builds on the first by asking how people view crime, disorder, and social control processes within their community. Finally, a third line of research follows this line of thought beyond neighborhoods, examining how people view crime, control, and related policies more broadly, and how these views impact political behavior. Underlying all three of these lines of research are two overarching themes: race and racism, and interpersonal interactions and relationships.

Professor Drakulich received his Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Washington, where he studied deviance and social control, as well as methodology through his association with the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences. He is a 2014 recipient of the National Institute of Justice’s W.E.B. Du Bois Fellowship as well as the 2014 New Scholar Award from the American Society of Criminology’s Division of People of Color and Crime. In 2016 the students of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice awarded him the Robert Sheehan Excellence in Teaching Award.
