Happy Friday! This week we rounded-up research on the historical roots of racialized mass incarceration and covered a new article about the power of framing pornography as addictive.

There’s Research On That

Historical Roots of Racialized Mass Incarceration by Hannah Schwendeman. We overviewed social scientific research that helps us understand the historical basis of racialized mass incarceration.


The Power of “Porn Addiction” by Mahala Miller. We feature new research that shows how understandings of pornography as “addictive” help justify judgements about sexuality and gender.
