Criminology professors Professors Kevin Drakulich and Megan Denver published a new peer-reviewed article in Perspectives on Politics that is now available online. The article is called “The Partisans and the Persuadables: Public Views of Black Lives Matter and the 2020 Protests.” The article’s abstract says: In the spring and summer of 2020, a remarkable number of Americans participated in a remarkable number of protests in support of Black Lives Matter. How did the general public understand these protests, and where does support for the movement stand overall? We answer this question by drawing on several national surveys from 2020 and then examining the results of a framing experiment we conducted in June 2020.
Congratulations to our criminologists for their work to make meaningful contributions in the field!
