I am pleased to announce that the University of Chicago Press has published my new book, Is the Cemetery Dead? (2018). A brief description of the book can be found under Publications. The book examines contemporary challenges to the cemetery as a lens into broader questions of shifting cultural attitudes toward nature, mourning, and commemoration.
2013 has been a very good year so far:
My colleagues and I have published new articles related to street gangs and civil gang injunctions, identifying high risk youth for secondary prevention, and improving GIS methodology related to fear of crime, as well as a wonderful article primarily researched by my doctoral student Bryce Lowery on outdoor advertising.
Professor LaVonna Lewis and I are evaluating two new grants that Community Health Councils received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as initiating a new study of food in City Height, San Diego under a grant from the Sol Price Institute for Social Innovation.
You also will find a new syllabus on Community Health Planning under Teaching that I taught last spring.
As papers and syllabus are ready, I will be adding them to the site, so be sure to check it out.
