“Current Status and Future Directions for Research on Genetics and Crime”

Harrington “Bo” Cleveland is the Co-Director of the Gene-Environment Research Initiative at Penn State. He received his J. D. from Boston College, his Ph.D. in Family Studies and Human Development from the University of Arizona, and post-doctoral training in demography at UNC-Chapel Hill. He is an Associate Editor of Journal of Research on Adolescence. His topical interests focus on person-by-context transactions affecting adolescent adjustment and substance use, with a long-term interest in gene x environment interactions and gene-environment correlations.

Eric J. Connolly’s research interests include biosocial criminology, criminological theory, and developmental/life-course criminology. His research focuses on the examination of genetic and environmental influences on criminal and delinquent behaviors across the life course. Some of his recent work has appeared in journals such as Child Development, Criminology, Journal of Criminal Justice, and Journal of Quantitative Criminology.

Their talk will be focused around the topic of genetics and crime, including the future directions and challenges for research in this area.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Justice Center for Research and the Department of Sociology and Criminology.
