    Many of the controversies in criminal justice are longstanding:  the limits of the criminal sanction, the dilemmas of regulating law enforcement in a democratic society, the purposes and justifications of punishment.  But as new social problems emerge, these longstanding problems present themselves in novel guises.  This daylong program will critically examine a wide range of challenges in thinking about, writing about, and teaching about criminal justice todaychallenges that include making sense of the shifting intersections of criminal justice with issues of race, gender, and nationality; shifting boundaries of federal, state, and local responsibility for criminal justice; and shifting patterns of cooperation and competition between the criminal justice system and the family.
