Allison Willingham is a victimologist and assistant professor of criminal justice in the UW-Superior’s Legal Studies & Criminal Justice program, housed within the Human Behavior, Justice and Diversity Department.  Allison—or Alli, as her students and colleagues call her—arrived at UW-Superior from the University of South Carolina’s doctorate program in Criminal Justice & Criminology, where she engaged in a qualitative dissertation that explored the perceptions and experiences of battered women who survived head injuries.  During her time at USC, Alli also completed a qualitative study evaluating the perceptions of peer victimization and bullying among parents of Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing children. 

Alli obtained a bachelor of science in criminal justice from Kentucky Wesleyan College before she received her master’s degree in criminal justice from Eastern Kentucky University.  Her master’s thesis, “Forgotten Victims: A Qualitative Study of Familial and Intimate Partner Abuse of Male-to-Female Transgender Individuals in Central Kentucky,” became one of the first American studies to examine intimate partner violence among transwomen.  She also co-authored a paper with organized crime expert Dr. Gary Potter, “Deviant Places, Deviant Networks: An Ethnographic Understanding of Underground Criminality in Rural Kentucky,” and worked for the Kentucky Innocence Project as an investigating extern.

In addition to her work as a victimologist and assistant professor, Alli is also an ethnographer and critical criminologist who examines gender, race, class, and LGBT issues within the criminal justice apparatus.  She is currently completing an e-textbook through Barnes & Noble and O’Donnell Learn, Correctional Institutions in the U.S., and will be featured in the first-ever textbook about transgender issues in domestic violence, Transgender Intimate Partner Violence: A Comprehensive Introduction, edited by Adam Messinger and Xavier Guadulpe-Diaz.
