Welcome to WilliamBowes.com.  I am a Criminologist / Sociologist currently attending graduate classes at the University of New Mexico.  I received a BA degree in Criminology with a minor in Sociology in 2014.

My primary areas of study are related to crime though I do occasionally obsess over other things.  I study the reasons and causes behind crime.  I am primarily a conflict criminologist.  This means that I apply a Marxist perspective to criminology.  It is the change process (in capitalist society) that leads to social conflict.  Social Conflict in turn leads to crime.  However, that perspective does not explain all aspects of crime which is why I often take into account some of the tenants of structural functionalism.
