Biography

Alesha Durfee's research and teaching focus on social policy and domestic violence, including mandatory arrest policies and civil protection orders. Her work has been published in journals such as  Gender & Society, Journal of Marriage and Family, Violence Against Women, Politics & Society, Global Public Health, Feminist Criminology, and  Feminist Teacher. She was the graduate director for Women and Gender Studies from 2014-2017, and will be the president-lect for the Faculty Women's Association at ASU in 2018-2019. 

She currently has a Researcher-Practitioner Partnership grant from the National Institue of Justice to study institutional and contextual factors that influence protection order filing and issuance rates using both quantitative and qualitative data. The Mesa Municipal Court and the National Center for State Courts are the practitioner and policy partners for the project. Her passion is working with community partners to create practitioner-informed, policy-relevant research using mixed methods.

She previously had a National Science Foundation (with Dr. Jill Theresa Messing) to analyze legal mobilization among domestic violence survivors, including the decision to file for a protection order, how the legal system is perceived by domestic violence survivors, and the costs and benefits of filing for an order for survivors.

Other research projects include protection order "cross filings", the arrest decision in cases of domestic violence reported to law enforcement, the consequences of mandatory and pro-arrest policies for domestic violence, the social construction of domestic violence victimization, and how gender influences how narratives of violence are constructed and interpreted in the justice system. She has also served as a guest co-editor (with Dr. Madelaine Adelman and Dr. Jill Theresa Messing) for a special issue of Violence Against Women on gender violence and transdisciplinarity. 

She has been recognized as a "Badass Woman of ASU" (ASU HerStory Project), a "Distinguished Mentor" (CLAS Residential College), and has been nominated for ASU Professor of the Year and the Centennial Professorship Award. In 2008 she received the Monalee Ewing Naming and Claiming Women's Space award for her contributions to undergraduate education at ASU and was also recognized in the "Hands of Change" calendar by the Intergroup Relations Center at ASU. She has led the School of Social Transformation's Clothesline Project since 2014 (https://sst.clas.asu.edu/clothesline-project). As a part of the project, she links students with campus and community organizations (such as domestic violence shelters and local schools) to do domestic violence education, outreach, and advocacy.

She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on domestic and sexual violence, social policy, quantitative and mixed-methods, and crime. She is currently developing and coordinating a new undergraduate certificate on sexual violence using an arts-based, research-informed perspective.

Prior to coming to ASU, she volunteered as a domestic violence victim advocate for the Seattle Police Department, and she continued her community service as a board member of the Purple Ribbon Council (a grassroots organization which works to prevent domestic violence through education and outreach).
