Each year, the Division of Victimology (DOV) presents awards for outstanding performance and service in the field of victimology. The awards are presented during the annual meeting at the American Society of Criminology Conference.
“I am so honored to win the Bonnie Fisher Victimology Career Achievement Award,” Wright says. “I have always followed the past winners’ work and admired their contributions to the field. This award acknowledges that their work has “moved the dial” on research on victimology, and I am incredibly honored that my peers feel that my work has made a similar impact on our understanding and response to victimization. This is by far one of the biggest achievements in my career thus far!”
“We are so pleased to learn that Dr. Emily Wright was selected for this prestigious award,” shares Gaylene Armstrong, director of the UNO School of Criminology and Criminal Justice. “Not only does Emily excel as a researcher, she works very closely with her graduate students to ensure they are a significant part of her research efforts. We are very fortunate to have her on our team.”
