Pamela Irving Jackson, Director, Justice Studies Program, Professor of Sociology, Rhode Island College, Providence Pamela Irving Jackson is professor of Sociology and Director of the Justice Studies Program at Rhode Island College. Her research has focused on issues of social control and minority status, resulting in articles published in major journals, and her book, Minority Group Threat, Crime and Policing: Social Context and Social Control. Professor Jackson’s book was included by Choice in the short list of “Outstanding Academic Books” published in 1989. Malcolm Holms cited her book in the May, 2000 issue of Criminology to make his point that “it has become increasingly clear that the roots of police-minority hostility are deeply embedded into the social structure.” In the 1990s Dr. Jackson turned her attention to testing the impact of minority threat on crime control in different political and cultural contexts. She received a Fulbright for the summer, 2002, German Studies Seminar, “International Migration and National Identity,” and she was later invited to collaborate, as a visiting fellow, with researchers at the Center for European Integration Studies in Bonn. Professor Jackson served on the editorial board of the American Sociological Review and is currently a reviewer for Criminology. Her 1991 article in Justice Quarterly, “Crime, Youth Gangs and Urban Transition: The Social Dislocations of Postindustrial Economic Development,” has been reprinted in three edited collections, including Ashgate Publishing’s International Library of Criminology, Criminal Justice and Penology. In 1997 she received the American Society of Criminology’s Mentor of the Year Award. Her research is closely related to her activities as a teacher in the areas of criminal justice, deviance, and social control. She was the 2000 recipient of the Paul Maixner Distinguished Teaching Award at Rhode Island College. In 2003 she received the Mary Tucker Thorp Professorship for Distinguished Research in Arts and Sciences. pjackson@ric.edu
