Bio | Jaclyn Schildkraut is Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at the State University of New York at Oswego, where she joined the faculty in 2014 after earning her Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from Texas State University. She has published three books on the topic of mass shootings (Mass Shootings: Media, Myths, and Realities, Praeger, 2016; Mass Shootings in America: Understanding the Debates, Causes, and Responses, ABC-CLIO, 2018; Columbine, 20 Years Later and Beyond: Lessons from Tragedy, Praeger, 2019) and has three additional book projects in process with ABC-CLIO and MIT Press. One of her more recent works (“The Survivor Network: The Role of Shared Experiences in Mass Shootings Recovery”, Victims & Offenders, 2020) featured semi-structured interviews with 16 survivors of the Columbine High School shooting to better understand the trauma recovery process for mass shooting survivors. She also has conducted several content analyses on the media representations of mass and school shootings to better understand framing of these events and how the media turn rare episodic crime into social problems. Her research also has appeared in journals including Journal of Qualitative Criminal Justice and Criminology, Homicide Studies, Journal of School Violence, Security Journal, American Journal of Criminal Justice, and others, and is regularly cited by the national and international media.
