We may be on spring break, but we’ve still got a great line up for you this week. See below for new pieces on voter suppression, March Madness, and cultural appropriation at rugby matches.

“Parents in Prison Hurts Children in the Classroom,” by Caity Curry. New research in Social Forces moves beyond boys’ bad behavior to investigate the negative cognitive impacts of parental incarceration on all children.
“Appropriating African American Spirituals for Sporting Events,” by Edgar Campos. The New York Times talked to John M. Williams and other social scientists about the causes and consequences of the English Rugby team’s use of “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” at their events.
