Congratulations to QUT C4J member, Dr Bridget Harris, on her recent award of ANZSOC New Scholar Prize for 2019. The New Scholar Prize is given each year for the best publication in criminology (or a related area) written by a member of the Society who qualifies as an early career researcher.
The article, co-authored with Delanie Woodlock , was published in British Journal of Criminology and is titled, “Digital Coercive Control: Insights From Two Landmark Domestic Violence Studies”. The authors present their recent studies on harmful and invasive behaviours enacted through technology. Bridget applies her research focus of domestic and family violence (DFV) and spatiality, and the unique ‘spaceless’ features of technology-facilitated DFV.
The full article is available through open access and can be found here.
Congratulations to Bridget on a very successful year pioneering and further developing research into this very important area, both in Australia and internationally. A well deserved award.
