The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies invites you to attend a research conversation with Stephanie DiPietro, associate professor in the department of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Missouri—St. Louis.
DiPietro, PhD, has been engaged in an ethnographic study of Bosnian refugees and nationals who experienced the Bosnian war and genocide (1992-1995) in early childhood. The aim of this research is to examine the ways in which early experiences with war and genocide contextualize pathways of human development and behavior over the life course. DiPietro's research draws on in-depth interviews and ethnographic data gathered from a sample of Bosnian men and women who experienced the Bosnian war in their youth, and who came of age in two distinct post-war contexts (St. Louis, Missouri and Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina).
DiPietro is the co-recipient of the 2011 W.E.B. Du Bois Fellowship from the National Institute of Justice for her research on the relationships among race-ethnicity, immigrant status, marriage, and offending as well as the recipient of a 2013–2014 J. William Fulbright Award for her research on family and community dynamics and criminal trajectories in post-war Bosnia- Herzegovina.
