Biographical Sketch

Anna Smith earned her B.A. in Communication and her M.S. in Sociology from Mississippi State University. Her main research focus is examining the ways that gender, violence, and victimization interact in the media. Through this, she hopes to gain insight into the ways that media act to normalize notions about gendered victimization. To this end, she has examined comic books, movies, and television shows for patterns in violence and depictions of gender. Her research is under review at The Journal of Communications Research.

Smith teaches Introduction to Sociology and Social Problems at UAH, and will be adding a third course in the spring of 2016.
