Marjorie S. Zatz is Professor of Justice and Social Inquiry in ASU's School of Social Transformation.  She is currently on leave, serving as director of the Law and Social Sciences Program at the National Science Foundation. Her research and teaching interests address the ways in which race, ethnicity, and gender impact juvenile and criminal court processing and sanctioning, immigration policy, Chicano/a gangs, and comparative justice, particularly Latin American legal systems.  Dr. Zatz is the author of Producing Legality: Law and Socialism in Cuba (Routledge, 1994) and co-editor of Law and the Quest for Justice (Quid Pro Books, 2013), Punishing Immigrants: Policy, Politics, and Injustice (New York University Press, 2012, Images of Color, Images of Crime (third edition Oxford University Press, 2006, first edition 1998, second edition 2002, Roxbury Publishing Company), and Making Law: The State, the Law, and Structural Contradictions (Indiana University Press, 1993).  She has published more than 60 articles and chapters in scholarly journals and academic presses, including Criminology, Justice Quarterly, Law and Society Review, Violence Against Women, and Social Problems. She received a Fulbright Senior Specialist Award in Spring 2012 to collaborate with colleagues at Monash University and RMIT in Melbourne, Australia. 

Zatz's honors and awards include the American Society of Criminology's Herbert Block Award, the American Society of Criminology Division on Women and Crime's Senior Scholar Award; the American Society of Criminology Division on People of Color and Crime's Lifetime Acheivement Award and its Coraemae Richey Mann Award for Outstanding Scholarship on Race, Ethnicity, Crime and Justice; the Western Society of Criminology's W.E.B. DuBois Award for Research on Race and the Administration of Justice and its Paul Tappan Award for Outstanding Contributions to Criminology; and the ASU Faculty Women's Association's Outstanding Mentor of Women Award.  Dr. Zatz received her Ph.D. in 1982 in Sociology with a minor in Latin American Studies from Indiana University, her M.A. in 1979 in Sociology from Indiana University, and her B.A. in 1977 in Sociology with a minor in Latin American Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
