Dr. Amy Fitzgerald is a Full Professor of Criminology in the Department of Sociology and Criminology, and also holds a hybrid appointment with the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research, at the University of Windsor. Her research focuses on the intersection of harms (criminal and otherwise) perpetrated against people, non-human animals, and the environment. She has published several peer-reviewed articles, chapters, and books, and is currently working on three grant-funded projects. Fitzgerald is a founding member of the University of Windsor’s Animal and Interpersonal Abuse Research Group, the recipient of a Distinguished Scholarship Award from the Animals and Society section of the American Sociological Association, the Mid-Career Outstanding Faculty Research Award from the University of Windsor, and was a visiting research fellow in the Animal Law and Policy Program at Harvard University in 2020. Dr. Rochelle Stevenson (Ph.D.) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environment, Culture, and Society at Thompson Rivers University, co-chair of CSA’s Animals in Society research cluster, and faculty member with the Animal and Interpersonal Abuse Research Group (AIPARG). At the core of Rochelle’s research is the human-animal relationship. Her research has highlighted the importance of this connection in myriad spaces, and most of her work sits at the intersection of interpersonal violence and violence against animals. Her research includes examining the avenues available to women who want to leave an abusive relationship but do not want to leave their companion animal in a situation of potential harm, national surveys of both residents of domestic violence shelters and shelter staff on the issue of animal abuse and mistreatment, and the perspectives of men who had committed abuse against their partner. Rochelle maintains an intersectional and anti-oppression foundation in her research and activism with two overarching goals: naming, understanding, and stopping violence in any form, and advocating for social justice via the inclusion of animals in social policy.
