Doctoral Research

My doctoral dissertation focuses on the process of transition for provincial female offenders who have served time in an Ontario correctional facility. I aim to understand relationship-building, the acquisition of social resources, and the negotiation of identity that takes place within the wider community network as the women re-enter society. Specifically, I draw on social capital theory (including networks and resources), gender responsive research and theories of friendship formation to understand how female offenders interact and bond with others as they transition from prison to the community. In addition to examining the process of social resource acquisition, I consider ways in which social ties and resources affect reintegration for provincially incarcerated women. I also pay particular attention to what is considered a ‘successful’ reintegration for provincial female ex-offenders, considering factors in addition to a measure of recidivism. Applying both qualitative and quantitative techniques to my interview data, I will present a thorough analysis of women’s experiences of transition from provincial institutions back to the community.
