Alice Goffman, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Alice Goffman is an ethnographer who writes about inequality, cities, and social interaction. Her book "On the Run" describes young men growing up as suspects and fugitives in the segregated Black neighborhoods torn apart by intensive policing and targeted imprisonment. Her current project, "Mapping the Fatefulness in Everyday Life," is about the experiences that change people's bonds, habits, ideas and plans. She attended graduate school at Princeton and now teaches sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
