Recent Professional Activities
Dr. Hendrix focuses much of her professional activities on those that increase partnerships with criminal justice agencies and provide enriching experiences for her students. Recently, her undergraduate research methods students partnered with political science students from Dr. Tanya Corbin’s course on disaster policy to conduct a survey of City of Radford residents on the needs and resources available for responding to crises and disasters. Dr. Hendrix presented findings resulting from collaborations with graduate students at both the American Society of Criminology and Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. Her current work examines cultural determinants of gun ownership and the role of media depictions of gun policy.
