Professor and Sociologist Emily Horowitz will deliver a thought provoking presentation during the ACSOL conference on Friday, September 17, at 11 a.m. (Pacific). Her presentation will focus upon “The Failure of Legal Responses to Sexual Violence” and will include a new perspective on how and why false claims about sex offenses have become so pervasive.
“Professor Horowitz understands the daily challenges faced by registrants and their loved ones,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “Her scholarly research includes sex offenses and other crimes against children as well as the hysteria that often surrounds such cases.”
Professor Horowitz is a full-time faculty member at St. Francis College in New York City. She is also author of the book, “Protecting Our Kids? How Sex Offender Laws Are Failing Us.” She has authored several articles, including “I was a child abuser” published in Psychology of Popular Media Culture and “Timeline of a Panic: A Brief History of Our Ongoing Sex Offense War” in the Southwestern Law Review.
Professor Horowitz earned a total of three degrees from Yale University as well as a bachelor of arts from Bard College. Professor Horowitz is also a member of the ACSOL board of directors.
