Honors Associate Director Profile imageProfessor Robinson's distinctive, interdisciplinary project combines psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory and critical and feminist criminologies in the study of trauma, criminality, and the social control of women and girls, in contemporary and historical context.

She is currently a Visiting Scholar at the University of Cambridge, Institute of Criminology and a Simon Visiting Professor at the University of Manchester School of Law, and has been a Visiting Research Fellow at Keele University, all in England. She has been the recipient of a Mary Lily Research Grant from Duke University's Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture.

Deeply committed to scholarship and praxis, Professor Robinson has also received many grants in support of research and scholarship in areas such as vicarious trauma and anti-violence workers, girls and violence, and teen relational violence, to combine theoretical research with extensive community engagement.
