Dr. Provine is Professor emerita in the School of Justice and Social Inquiry. She came to Arizona State University in 2001 to direct the School of Justice Studies and served in that role for six years. Her first appointment was at Syracuse University where she rose to full professor and chaired the department. She has served in Washington twice, once as Director of the Law and Social Sciences Program at the National Science Foundation, and earlier as a Judicial Fellow assigned to the Federal Judicial Center. She has also taught abroad, in Strasbourg, France, Madrid, Spain, and Geneva, Switzerland. Her areas of interest reflect her background in law (JD Cornell) and political science (Ph.D. Cornell). Some of her research has focused on courts and policies related to them, most recently the role racism has played in the war on drugs. She is the author of Unequal Under Law:Race and the War on Drugs (2007). Her current work revolves around policies concerning unauthorized immigration. A year-long Fulbright research grant (2007-2008) allowed her to examine the issue from a cross-national perspective. With generous support from the National Science Foundation, she is studying how local police are responding to opportunities to collaborate with federal officials in the enforcement of federal immigration law.
the legal and institutional
underpinnings of unequal citizenship, race, ethnicity, and the
politics of civic membership.
