The language of quant crit is in its infancy but the practice has a long legacy dating back to Du Bois and Wells-Barnett.

Let's use #QuantCritSyllabus to feature studies that use critical quantitative methodologies and frameworks. I'll start.

Who else has experienced an abuse of power in academia? Please share. Eons ago a diss advisor stole my work. I reclaimed it in 2nd ed of Servants of Globalization. Arlie Hochschild rephrased my concept and named it the #carechain, used my data, none of her own. #SOCAF #sociology
For years, until now, my theory is haunted by the assumption that my advisor helped me developed it. She did not. I sound like a bona fide research assistant in her writings when in fact the work she is using was pulled and rephrased from my dissertation #metoo
It is important I did this/do this as a senior woman of color scholar because I am not the first and definitely not the last to experience this in academia.

Excited to share my new first-author paper, "Police Enforcement of Sex Work Criminalization Laws in an 'End Demand' City: The Persistence of Quality-of-Life Policing and Seller Arrests" in Archives of Sexual Behavior. #socaf #decrim @SFSWR1 @DecrimSex

In the 00's, @chicagosmayor's Office set out to change the way sex work was policed, issuing guidance to @Chicago_Police to focus on arresting buyers (i.e End Demand) rather than sex workers. This can be understood as a watered-down version of the "Nordic Model."

To understand how arrest practices did/didn't change, we looked at annualized arrest statistics and conducted mixed-methods analysis of 575 arrest reports from 2015 to 2017. Arrests overall dropped BUT over 80% of those arrested were still sex workers.
