Dr. Rita Shah

Professor. Scholar.

I am a cultural criminologist with an interest in questioning how we think about and frame corrections and correctional systems. I specialize in visual and qualitative methods, including photo documentation. I am currently an Associate Professor of Criminology at Eastern Michigan University in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology (SAC)

Teaching & Classes

I love spending time in the classroom and working with students to achieve their academic goals.

Using a mix of textual, interview, and visual methods, I study the social construction of corrections.
