About Me

Janice E. Clifford is an associate professor of sociology and criminology. She teaches and conducts research in the areas of violent crime, violence against women, and juvenile delinquency with focus on both victimization and offending behavior. This includes examining the impact of social, cultural and contextual factors contributing to criminal incidents. The scope of her research is both national and international. Her outreach activities involve co-directing CSI: Auburn, a science literacy program for grades 5-8th that provides education about forensic sciences within an academic context and informs as to its use in various social science disciplines. She is co-editor of Female Victims of Crime: Reality Reconsidered, and her work has been published in Violence Against Women, International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, Race and Justice, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, and Homicide Studies.
