Begun Center’s Karen Coen Flynn and Mark S. Fleisher write chapter for Routledge Handbook of Street Culture

Cultural anthropologists Karen Coen Flynn, senior research associate at the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education, and Mark S. Fleisher, research professor at the Begun Center, co-wrote a new chapter of the Routledge Handbook of Street Culture. In their chapter, “Writing ‘Street Culture’ Should be a Crime,” Flynn and Fleisher explore the problematic nature of the term “street culture” as it contributes to a harmful association between the “street” and violence, crime and poverty. 

The chapter is available online in the Routledge Handbook of Street Culture.
