  Feminist Perspectives on Parental Incarceration  
(Research)

Dr. Amanda Burgess-Proctor will be visiting Virginia Tech to give a lecture and meet with students and our community as we continue learning about the far-reaching impacts of mass incarceration. As mass incarceration has proliferated in recent decades, so has the body of research examining outcomes among children of incarcerated parents. Despite these advances, the gendered effects of parental incarceration for adult offspring remain poorly understood. This presentation examines the impact of maternal and paternal incarceration on adult daughters' and sons' criminal justice system involvement, and considers how feminist criminological perspectives are useful for enhancing the rapidly-growing parental incarceration literature.

Amanda Burgess-Proctor is an associate professor of criminal justice at Oakland University and chair of the American Society of Criminology Division on Women and Crime. She earned her PhD in criminal justice from Michigan State University. Her primary research interests include intimate partner abuse, sexual victimization, and crime and drug policy. Her research has appeared in Criminal Justice & Behavior, Justice Quarterly, Feminist Criminology, Violence Against Women, and Violence & Victims. Her current research examines victimization histories and offending patterns of female sex offenders.

Sponsored by the Department of Sociology, the Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention, Women's and Gender Studies, the Race and Social Policy Center, and the Women's Center at Virginia Tech.
