“Widening the Net of Education and Scholarship in
Criminology and Criminal Justice”

September 9-12, 2020
Biloxi, MS
Beau Rivage Resort & Casino

We’re headed to Biloxi, Mississippi in 2020! Join us at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino for a great conference! In addition to the stellar panels and fellowship that have made Southern conference the top regional criminology conference, we’ve planned a special emphasis on how we expand the reach of our scholarship and teaching in meaningful ways to recognize and value the importance of interdisciplinary outreach and implications. Thematic presentations, discussions, and roundtables will largely focus on this theme. The Beau Rivage Resort and Casino is a waterfront resort owned and operated by MGM Resorts International and is the largest hotel casino outside of Las Vegas. You will have access to white Gulf Coast beaches during the day and a wide variety of entertainment venues within the hotel when the sun goes down. The hotel is within walking distance of the Biloxi Lighthouse, the downtown Biloxi area, as well as several cultural points of interest.

The deadline for proposals is June 15, 2020.  
Program Chair: Dr. Bryan Miller
