Current Research Projects
Working within a qualitative research paradigm (Women Fielding Danger: Negotiating Ethnographic Identities in Field Research (Roman and Littlefield, 2008), Huggins—a critical criminologist--has conducted research on labor control and repression (From Slavery to Vagrancy in Brazil: Crime and Social Control in the Third World, Rutgers, 1984); Latin American death squads and other forms of State-related vigilantism (Vigilantism and the State in Modern Latin America (Praeger, 1991); U.S. international policing as political control in Latin America (Political Policing: The U.S. and Latin America, Duke, 1997); marginalization of Brazilian 'Others'—poor, Black street youth, gays and lesbians in Brazil (articles and political asylum reports); on police and para-police violence (various articles); and on torture and assassination in Brazil (Violence Workers: Torturers and Murderers Reconstruct Brazilian atrocities, U. of Calif. Press). Huggins research is informed by a critical criminology paradigm.
