Jennifer L. Schally joined the faculty at Penn State Harrisburg in 2014 as a Lecturer in Criminal Justice where she regularly teaches courses in criminology and race and crime. She earned her Ph.D. in sociology with a concentration in criminology at the University of Tennessee in 2014. In addition, she holds an M.A. in community psychology and social change with a concentration in environmental issues, and a B.S. in sociology, both from Penn State Harrisburg. Her dissertation research investigated the discursive construction of harm to the environment and to nonhumans by US agribusiness. Her current research explores the cultural logics of ethical vegans, framing these logics as discourses of resistance to widespread harm to animals. Dr. Schally’s work has appeared in academic journals such as Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare, American Journal of Community Psychology, and Journal of Interpersonal Violence.
