Research

research overview

  • Dr. Potter’s research focuses on the critical analysis of the intersections of race, gender, and class as they relate to crime and violence (intersectional criminology). She is currently researching violence against women of women of Color; men’s use of violence; and antiviolence activism in Black and Latinx communities. In January 2014, Dr. Potter began an ethnographic research project based on the work and lives of anti-violence activists working in communities of Color in the Denver, Colorado area. In October 2014, Dr. Potter began conducting ethnographic research in Ferguson, Missouri, on women involved in the anti-State violence ('Black Lives Matter') movement that began after the police officer-involved shooting death of Michael Brown. Dr. Potter also continues her ongoing qualitative research on (a) women of Color combating intimate partner violence and (b) a comparison of race, class, and targets-of-violence variations among men who use violence.
