DISTINGUISHED LECTURE #2
IAST welcomes the public to hear from some of the world’s most high-profile thinkers in behavioral economics, law and history as they investigate our ideas about judgment.
2017's second public talk stars Nicola Lacey, London School of Economics:

Early criminologists’ panic about women’s liberation was misplaced: it has not caused a surge in female offenders. But what will the future hold if ideas about female deviance now focus on badness rather than madness?
