Garrett Baker has been awarded “First Place” in the Gene Carte Student Paper Competition by the American Society of Criminology for his paper, “Shattered Dreams: Paternal Incarceration, Youth Expectations, and the Intergenerational Transmission of Disadvantage.” The paper is forthcoming in Sociological Science.

Garrett humbly called it a “nice testament to our department” as the paper evolved from his final project in Stephen Vaisey's 1st year stats class, to his 2nd year paper when Martin Ruef was teaching, to his forthcoming publication with guidance from his advisor, Chris Wildeman.

Congratulations Garrett!
