<p>After what many would consider too long a time, I have moved to a part-time teaching assignment in the Department of Sociology.&nbsp; For the foreseeable future I will continue to teach a course in Penology in both the fall and spring terms, as well as administering the Department&rsquo;s Internship and Co-op programs.&nbsp; This latter responsibility I am sharing with my colleague, Dr. Holli Drummond.&nbsp; Closing down shop on other offerings such as Organized Crime and the Sociology of Criminal Law should only prove to enhance the quality of these courses as they will now be taught by some of the greatest minds and finest teachers available.&nbsp; I plan to be working toward earning the honorific title of Professor Emeritus.</p>

    [Section_Field1] => Biography
    [Section_Value1] => <p>Jerry Daday is an Professor of <a href="http://www.wku.edu/sociology/">Sociology</a> and the Executive Director of the <a href="http://www.wku.edu/citl/">Center for Innovative Teaching &amp; Learning (CITL)</a> at Western Kentucky University (WKU).&nbsp; Jerry works with an <a href="http://www.wku.edu/citl/staff/">exceptional team</a> within CITL to support the teaching and learning mission of the university by collaborating with faculty to design content and courses that promote student engagement and success through active and applied learning opportunities.&nbsp; In addition to his general administrative responsibilities, Jerry works with various team members to create, administer, and deliver professional development opportunities for faculty and graduate students through professional learning communities, workshops, seminars, webinars, and single day conferences. CITL also collaborates with several units/centers at WKU to develop, implement, and assess High-Impact Practices (HIPs) and to ensure these efforts are done with purpose, fidelity and inclusive excellence.&nbsp; &nbsp;Coupled with this work at WKU, Jerry is part of a national community of practice that is committed and dedicated to empirically investigate HIPs and their influence on student success, retention, deep learning, and the acquisition of skills needed for success in the Twenty-First Century labor force.&nbsp; He is working closely with this group to plan and host the annual <a href="https://www.wku.edu/hips/">HIPs in the States Conference</a> at WKU between February 20-22, 2019. &nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Since earning his Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico in 2004, Jerry&rsquo;s primary research interests have focused on the etiology of violent offending and victimization in society.&nbsp; His dissertation and subsequent scholarly research focused on the extent of the overlap and divergence between victims and offenders involved in interpersonal violence.&nbsp; More recently, Jerry has utilized his methodological and quantitative expertise in support of several interdisciplinary research projects at WKU.&nbsp; These include: (1) a project funded by the US Department of Agriculture to examine the use of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) used at Farmers&rsquo; Markets in Kentucky; (2) a quantitative study examining perceptions of wildlife management and conservation strategies near Kruger National Park in South Africa; (3) a quantitative study examining student perceptions of e-text and e-learning materials and cognitive load in biology courses; (4) a quantitative project examining factors that increase graduation rates for students enrolled in STEM disciplines, and finally, (5) an evaluation of technologies that may be used to increase accessibility for students enrolled in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).&nbsp; In addition, Jerry has developed a research and teaching interest focused on Bosnia and Herzegovina, and more specifically the war and ethnic cleansing that occurred there between 1992-1995 and the genocide that occurred in Srebrenica in July of 1995.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>In addition to his teaching, research and administrative responsibilities, Jerry is also actively involved in supporting the local community.&nbsp; Between 2012 and 2016, Jerry served as the co-director of <a href="http://www.wku.edu/tid/">WKU&rsquo;s Patricia Minton Taylor Theatre in Diversion Program</a>, which gives students from WKU&rsquo;s Department of Theatre and Dance and the Department of Sociology the opportunity to mentor at risk youth from the community who have committed a low level juvenile offense.&nbsp; He has also worked with the local Bosnian-American community to offer events that inform students, faculty, and staff at WKU and the larger Bowling Green community about the causes and aftermath of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the efforts of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and national courts to achieve justice for the victims, and various efforts to promote reconciliation and nation-building since the conflict ended with the signing of the Dayton Peace Accords in 1995.&nbsp; In the summer of 2017, Jerry co-facilitated the Zuheir Sofia Endowed International Faculty Seminar <a href="https://www.wku.edu/zseifs/index.php">(ZSEIFS) to Bosnia-Herzegovina</a>.&nbsp; &nbsp;Last year, Jerry also co-chaired <a href="https://www.wku.edu/strategicplan/student/index.php">WKU&rsquo;s Student Success and Experience Strategic Planning working group</a>.</p>
    [Section_Field2] => Courses Taught
    [Section_Value2] => <p>Jerry has taught several courses on a regular basis in the Department of Sociology at WKU, including Victimology, Life-Course Criminology, Comparative Criminology, Research Methods, Sociological Theory, and Introductory Sociology.&nbsp;He offered a new Colonnade General Education Course entitled Human-Wildlife Conflict in the fall semester of 2017 co-taught with Dr. Mike Stokes from the WKU Department of Biology.</p>

    [Section_Field2] => Research
    [Section_Value2] => <p>My research mostly involves analysis of the influence of circumstance on adolescent perception and behavior.&nbsp; Specifically, I have conducted survey research in Medellin Colombia, and been a part of the Mobile Youth Survey in Mobile and Pritchard, Alabama.&nbsp; Both studies evaluate the impact of a disadvantaged and often violent social environment on adolescent development and behavior.&nbsp; Through collaborations with Dr. John Bolland, Dr. John Dizgun, and Dr. David Keeling, I have published articles in <em>Deviant Behavior</em>, <em>Focus on Geography, Journal of Interpersonal Violence,</em> and <em>Youth and Society.&nbsp; </em>In addition to this theoretical work, I am also interested in evaluations of juvenile justice in KY.&nbsp; My evaluation of a local restorative justice program was published in <em>Contemporary Journal of Sociology and Anthropology </em>and I am currently involved in analysis of Disproportionate Minority Contact in two KY communities with my colleague Dr. Donielle Lovell.&nbsp;</p>

    [Section_Field2] => Research
    [Section_Value2] => <p>Currently my research interests include the sociology of popular music and gender. My recent publications on popular music performers include analyses of drug use among musicians (<em>Deviant Behavior</em>), performers' ideologies (<em>Qualitative Sociology</em>), female rock 'n' roll performers (<em>Gender &amp; Society</em>), the culture of bluegrass musicians, and nonverbal dimensions of music performance (both in <em>Popular Music &amp; Society</em>). My work in the sociology of gender has resulted in a number of publications on various aspects of interaction between doctors and both female and male patients (<em>Language in Society</em>, <em>Sociology of Health and Illness</em>, and <em>Sociological Focus</em>). I am currently writing an article that examines the structure and strength of sexual scripts among male and female college students. I also have published a theoretical article on sociology and literature (<em>Sociological Inquiry</em>) and a practical piece on using films to teach the sociology of popular music (<em>Teaching Sociology</em>).</p>
<p>In addition to teaching our required graduate courses in Sociological Theory and Qualitative Research Methods, I have enjoyed working closely with many of our MA students on thesis projects covering a wide range of sociological topics. Some of the more memorable in recent years include <em>Stigma and the Negotiation of Identity by Rural and Small-Town Lesbians</em> (Margaret Cooper), <em>Patriots and Scuds: A Content Analysis of Letters to the Editor in The Tennessean and The Washington Post</em> (Donna Dorris), <em>Face Saving at the Singles Bar: Effects of Women's Perceptions of Men and Their Performances on Women's Methods of Rejection</em> (Rob McCracken), <em>The Importance of the Concept of Conscience-Collective in Emile Durkheim's Thought: A Theoretical and Historical Analysis</em> (James Ridenour-Jones), <em>African-Americans in Television Advertisements: A Content Analysis</em> (Amy Anderson), and <em>Marital and Personal Life-Satisfaction among Married Female Graduate Students: A Qualitative Analysis of Value Conflicts</em> (Alecia Gall).</p>

    [Section_Value2] => <p>My main area of research is in community leadership particularly in the Mississipi Delta.&nbsp; My dissertation focused on how race, class and gender operated in the election and governing experiences of mayors in thirteen Mississippi Delta communitites.&nbsp; This work will be extended in the future of focus specifically on rural women leaders as the challenges they faced due to gender were particularly interesting.&nbsp; Further, the research will be extended to other racial and ethnic groups to better understand cultural differences in the understanding and operation of leadership.</p>
<p>I also have interest in participatory and action research and evaluation.&nbsp; I have experience conducting evaluations of leadership development prgrams across the United States.&nbsp; Most recently I finished an evaluation of the Mid-South Delta Leaders Program a tri-state partenership with Delta State University in Mississippi, Arkansas State University and Grambling State University in Louisiana and funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.</p>

    [Section_Value2] => <p>My research interests lie within the broad areas of development and demography. In development, I am currently researching the implications of international debt on the economic development of poor countries. I am using Kenya as a case study. In demography, I am interested in the fertility transitions that are underway in some African countries. While most of the previous studies on fertility transitions did emphasize structural changes for a fertility transition to take place, most of the fertility transitions currently underway in some countries of Africa are taking place without any appreciable economic changes. This, therefore, raises some questions concerning why this would be so. I am, therefore, applying a new theoretical handle, the social networks approach, to help explain this puzzling phenomenon.</p>

<p>These days, I come as a post-civil rights activist; one who balances teaching, research, and service in the creation of a live conversation about equality with those who gather within the sound of my voice.&nbsp; As an academic leader and activist in the Diversity Movement of the twenty-first century, I stand in the classroom and within the community walls to speak of the equality and freedoms of a democracy charging the air we breathe.&nbsp; I understand how the discourse not only pulls us together, but becomes our articulate collective authentication to change the world.&nbsp; For more than 25 years I have been a cultural voice for equality and justice; teaching, writing, and speaking out against racism, sexism, classism, and organized inequities of all kinds.&nbsp; A product of Texas&rsquo; racism, sexism, and classism, a Black woman&rsquo;s voice, born in the struggle in Texas against racism in America during the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s.&nbsp; My life and work supports the concept of community based culture with an enlarged capacity for mutual respect and care for humanity.</p>

    [Section_Field2] => Research
    [Section_Value2] => <p>Simultaneously, I have worked on many projects with undergraduates, graduate students and faculty. These have included projects on:</p>
<ul>
<li>community (community field theory, as well as a 100-year community restudy), education (examining education test scores, scholastic audits of schools, and perceptions of alternative schooling).</li>
<li>environment and natural resources (human-wildlife conflict in Kenya, the effects of wildland fire on community).</li>
<li>health (the community context of well-being).</li>
<li>the Internet and video gaming (the effect of gaming on relationships and leadership, the effect of classroom computer use and internet access on education test scores).</li>
<li>migration (the effect of return migration on Appalachia, the assimilation of Burmese and Iraqi refugees).</li>
<li>work (the cyclicality of employment).</li>
</ul>
<p>I and my coauthors have presented these projects at statewide, regional, national and international conferences.&nbsp;</p>
<p>While much of my time during this period has been spent teaching and doing research with students and colleagues, I have coauthored (with James Grimm, Gene Theodori, and A.E. Luloff) an article in <em>Research in the Sociology of Health Care</em>. I also have two articles&ndash;one on support of hard, soft, and conservation energy paths among Texans (coauthored with Jessica Aldridge and Gene Theodori) and one on perceptions of the nursing profession (with Sherry Lovan and Steven Miller)&ndash;under review with other journals.</p>
<p>Speaking of journals, I was the editor-in-chief of <em>Southern Rural Sociology </em>(which recently changed its name to <em>The Journal of Rural Social Sciences)</em> from 2006 to 2010. While I have passed those duties over to others, I remain the Managing Editor and webmaster for the journal until 2013. I will also be serving as an Assistant Editor on <em>Sociological Inquiry </em>during the same period.</p>
    [Section_Field3] => Biography
    [Section_Value3] => <p>PhD, Pennsylvania State University.</p>
<p>Over my career, I have become a very eclectic sociologist. I was trained to work in the interstices of community, environment, social movements, and social psychology, although I often ventured outside these spaces. My intellectual roaming is more constrained now that I am Head of the Sociology Department at WKU. Still, let me tell you a little bit about what I have done recently and what I continue to do.</p>
<p>During the last five years, I taught undergraduate courses on collective behavior and social movements, disasters and the sociology of risk, environment and natural resources sociology, research methodology, social theory, symbolic interaction.&nbsp; At the graduate level, I taught the proseminar to sociology as well as graduate courses on advanced data analysis, community sociology, research methodology, rural education, and rural poverty. (The syllabi for all these courses are available on my website.) Beyond teaching in the classroom, I also currently serve on eleven sociology M.A. theses and seven Ed.D. committees in the Educational Leadership program.</p>
<p>If you would like more detailed information about me or any of my activities, please visit my faculty website or send me an email. I am willing to talk with folks about my research or about any project ideas they might have. Some continuing areas of particular interest to me include: community theory; ecofeminism; environmental and natural resources crime; rural isolation; the relationship of place and space; the potential for different types of place attachment; community studies and restudies; and regional social movements.</p>

    [Section_Field2] => Research
    [Section_Value2] => <p>My research to date has focused on the prior criminal offending of single-victim and serial homicide offenders in order to determine if those with similar patterns in their criminal histories go on to commit similar behaviors at the homicide crime scene(s). My research is part the growing international field of Investigative Psychology that focuses on the classification of violent crime according to objective behaviors at the crime scene and offender characteristics. This work seeks to advance offender profiling as an empirical pursuit with a focus on both theoretical implications and investigative applications. My work has resulted in&nbsp;a number of publications appearing in the <em>Journal of Investigative Psychology and Offender Profiling,&nbsp;Homicide Studies, Victims and Offenders, Journal of Criminal Psychology </em><em>and the </em><em>Journal of Interpersonal Violence. </em></p>
<p>I have collaborated on research projects with both national and city law enforcement agencies in the past and hope to establish similar collaborations in the region for future projects. My future research will continue to focus on offending escalation preceding a homicide or homicide series and its link to crime scene behavior, as well as offender differentiation according to sub-types of homicide. My research interests and ongoing projects cover a variety of areas related to the criminal justice system broadly and homicide specifically, including antisocial lifestyle indicators among homicide victims, and the role of forensic evidence in the identification and arrest of homicide suspects, as well as the influence of popular crime dramas on the criminal justice system.</p>
