People: Research Fellows
Shea Streeter’s research examines how race and the local environment shape the ways that people experience, perceive, and respond to incidents of police violence in the US. Her ongoing book project titled No Justice, No Peace: Civilian Responses to Police Violence explores the conditions under which police killings spark political mobilization. This research agenda has produced several discoveries regarding the similarities in the circumstances of police killings among Blacks and Whites, the ways that personal, racial identity defines perceptions of police violence, and the large racial gap in the rate of protest following police killings.
