Emily M. Meyer received her BS in family studies at Central Michigan University and earned her MA in family and child ecology and PhD in media and information studies at Michigan State University.

Her dissertation analyzed mass media portrayals of fatal intimate partner violence (IPV) across 17 years of newspaper reports. Meyer continues to investigate how news journalists frame IPV-related crimes, but has launched a new line of research on the experiences of female IPV victims who are also under correctional supervision (i.e., on probation, parole, or incarcerated). A qualitative researcher, Meyer is interested in studying the complex lives of women who balance a dual identity of IPV victim and criminal offender.

Meyer teaches a variety of courses, including Domestic Violence (CJ 425), Corrections (CJ 312), Victimology (CJ 306), and Juvenile Justice (CJ 305). In these particular classes, she introduces students to the family ecological model and integrates human and social service considerations into how the criminal justice system responds to victims and perpetrators of crime. She also teaches Crime in the Media (CJ 300), Social Science Research Methods (CJ 209), and Introduction to Criminal Justice (CJ 101).

In addition to teaching and research, Meyer serves on the Undergraduate Research Committee and Sexual Harassment/Assault and Response & Prevention Committee (SHARP). She is the faculty adviser of Pi Gamma Mu, the social science honor society, and the Violence Intervention Peer Advocates (VIPA). Meyer is also active in the local community, serving as a board member of Circle, which is Washington County’s domestic violence/IPV response program. Nationally, she serves as an Executive Counselor for the Academy of Criminal Justice Science’s (ACJS) Victimology section.
