Biography


Shannon Malone Gonzalez is a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at The University of Texas at Austin interested in intersectional and mixed-methodological approaches to criminology and public policy. Her research on police violence against black women and girls investigates how their social position in converging systems of inequality shapes their experiences with police and resistance to police violence.

Shannon’s first project uses in-depth interviews to examine how black mothers conceptualize the vulnerability of black girls to policing and impart strategies to prevent police contact and violence. Her dissertation is a mixed-methodological study of how black women understand their experiences with police and their resources and social ties for coping with police violence.  

Shannon is a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and W.K. Kellogg Community Leadership Fellow. She received a M.S. in Nonprofit and NGO Leadership from the University of Pennsylvania and her B.A. in English Literature from Tougaloo College.
