Dr. Raleigh Blasdell, assistant professor of criminal justice, social work and sociology, recently presented a research paper at the 2019 International Conference on Social Justice in London. The paper, entitled “Content Analysis of Depictions of Terrorism in U.S. Major Motion Pictures: A Social Constructionist Perspective,” was honored with the “Best Presentation” award by the conference host. The paper was co-authored by Lauren Waldrop, an anthropology and criminal justice double major, and first-year criminal justice graduate student Brigid Toney. An early stage of the project was funded by the 2018 Middle Eastern Studies Faculty-Student Research Collaboration Grant, which allowed Waldrop and Toney to present the preliminary findings at the 2018 Midwestern Criminal Justice Association Annual Conference. Blasdell, Waldrop and Toney have plans to further expand their research.
