Renee Souris

Professorial Lecturer
Department of Justice, Law & Criminology

  • Renee Nicole Souris is a PhD candidate in Law and Society and Political Theory. Her dissertation examines the question of how individual moral and criminal responsibility for wrongdoing is impacted, if at all, by the abusive or violent nature of one's past and present environment. In particular, her inquiry is motivated by the question of how to think about the moral and criminal responsibility of adult soldiers who were kidnapped or forcibly recruited to fight as children. In addition to her research experience, Renee has gained professional and teaching experience throughout graduate school. She has worked for the United States Sentencing Commission of the U.S. Federal Government and has taught several classes in the School of Public Affairs in both the Department of Law and Society and in the Department of Government.
