Saint Louis metropolitan Research Exchange 2018-2018 Lunch Time Series presents Dr. Andrea Boyles. Dr. Andrea Boyles is a native of St. Louis, MO. She received her B.A. in English and M.A. in Sociology from Lincoln University of Missouri, and later, earned her PhD in Sociology from Kansas State University, with concentrations in Gender and Criminology. Her research interests are social inequality; gender; the intersectionality of race, class, and gender; criminology; incarceration; race, place, and policing; and qualitative methods/ethnography.

‘A substantive and fascinating ethnographic study concentrating on race, criminal justice, and racial political resistance. Very little scholarship in our field constitutes this type of solid, detailed, and well-integrated methodological work…marrying the micro and macro levels of data and analysis. This work constitutes a path-breaking study of the black community engaging in community and political activity that the author frames as “protecting and serving.” This phenomenon is documented in impressive detail, and theorizes this phenomenon using a rich and captivating explanatory framework.’

–Peter Kraska, Author of Militarizing the American Criminal Justice System: The Changing Roles of the Armed Force and the Police
