Miroslava Chavez-Garcia will discuss her new book, “States of Delinquency: Race and Science in the Making of California’s Juvenile Justice System,” on Tuesday, May 15, in a talk hosted by the UC Davis Bookstore.

The free public talk will run from 1 to 2 p.m. in the store’s special events room, next to the post office, inside the Memorial Union.

The book by Chavez-Garcia, an associate professor Chicano/a Studies, analyzes the rise of the of the juvenile justice system with “one of the harshest states — California — as a case study for examining racism in the treatment of incarcerated young people of color,” according to a news release.

Her book, published by the University of California Press,  details the ideologies and practices of the system in the 19th and 20th centuries, explores the pseudo-scientific research used to classify of youths of color as degenerate and shows the resistance of boys and girls, and their families, to harsh treatment, including sterilization.
