Jullily Kohler-Hausmann is an assistant professor in history within the College of Arts and Science. She explores the relationship and interactions between the welfare state and “carceral  state” in modern U.S. history. Her current book project delves into efforts to enact “tough” welfare, drug and anti-crime laws during the 1970s. She argues that punitive social welfare and criminal policy not only helped discredit the welfare state and produce mass incarceration, but also renegotiated the terms of citizenship and state responsibility. More details about her publications and background are available on her website.
