Welcome back! It’s our last roundup of 2018 and we’ve got our *Best of 2018* in full swing. This week we feature research on sexual violence behind bars and how children learn rules for romance in preschool. We’ve also got sociological takes on racial demographic projections and the gender gap in politics.
