Dr. Hipp presents recent work at the SoCal Social Analytics Workshop

A wealth of digital information is generated daily through social networks, e.g., Twitter. A number of domains, including public health, national security, public safety, and public policy, can benefit greatly from the awareness of trends and situations as they become observable in social media data. There are many active research projects from various disciplines related to social media analytics. The purpose of this one-day workshop is for SoCal researchers to present their work, exchange ideas, and explore collaboration opportunities in this increasingly important domain.

Dr. Kubrin presents “Immigration and Crime: Is the Narrative Fact or Fiction?” at UCI Social Ecology Daybreak Session

When it comes to immigration and crime, the current political zeitgeist and public sentiment suggest immigrants are far more likely to engage in illegal acts than those who are American born. But is this narrative based in fact or is it merely fiction? On April 17, 2018, Charis Kubrin, Professor of Criminology, Law and Society at the University of California, Irvine, revealed her compelling research. Kubrin shared the latest research data, regarding our neighbors from around the globe. This event was the third Daybreak Dialogues Breakfast Speaker Series, part of the UCI School of Social Ecology’s Changemakers’ program.
