Dr. Barbara Perry
Dr. Perry is Professor of Criminology, Justice and Policy Studies at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. She has written extensively in the area of hate crime, including two books on the topic: In the Name of Hate: Understanding Hate Crime; and Hate and Bias Crime: A Reader. She has just completed a book manuscript for University of Arizona Press entitled The Forgotten Victims: Native American Victims of Hate Crime, based on interviews with Native Americans. She is also completing a British Home Office project on anti-racism programming in England and Wales. Her work has been published in journals representing diverse disciplines: Theoretical Criminology , Journal of Social and Behavioral Sciences; Journal of History and Politics; and American Indian Quarterly. Dr. Perry continues to work in the area of hate crime, and has begun to make contributions to the limited scholarship on hate crime in Canada. Here, she is particularly interested in anti-Muslim violence, and hate crime against Aboriginal people. She hopes that this website will also help to advance this nascent field of Canadian studies.
