"Partial Room Entry Versus Full Room Entry into a Hostile Room: An Assessment of Officer Speed, Accuracy, and Safety." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 72nd Annual Meeting, Hilton New Orleans Riverside, New Orleans, LA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1149527_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Prior research has tested different room entry tactics to determine the safest and most effective manner for law enforcement officers to enter a hostile room. New techniques have been introduced that suggest officers can peek into a room to effectively address a hostile suspect without making entry. The current study assessed this peeking technique versus previously tested room entry techniques. The findings regarding officer safety and their ability to address a hostile suspect are discussed. Further, potential policy and training implications are presented.

Abstract: Fairy tale princesses span nearly all cultures and time periods. However, as noted by Maria Elena Solino, “the Walt Disney Studio . . . can be considered the most influential disseminators of all times, and in this role they have continued to maintain a status quo that remains essentially sexist and racist.” I have endeavored to locate, (re)create and transform tales, histories, and images of princesses by co-creating a videogame and educational website. These resources highlight diverse histories without subtle messages about body image restrictions, heteronormativity, race misrepresentation, and “good” female behavior.

Can a Chat Room be a Real Community?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 11, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p104260_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Researchers assert that communities are emerging over computer-mediated communication in various Internet formats such as interactive chat rooms (Blanchard and Horan, 1998). In chat rooms, people type each other messages in real-time or read others' conversations as they are occurring. I have chosen to study a trauma/abuse survivors chat room because this chat room seems to have more longevity and continuity in its membership than other chat rooms I visited.
Through this research I seek to understand relationship building and the establishment and modes of function of a chat room community. Additionally, my goal is to explore how “community” is defined and maintained in this virtual setting.
