Portrait of Dr. Burt
Assistant Professor; 2013 W.E.B. Du Bois Fellow
Arizona State University

Dr. Callie Burt is an assistant professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University and a faculty affiliate of the School of Social Transformation and Gender and Women's Studies Program at ASU. She earned her B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Georgia, where she won several awards for her research as a graduate student. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms through which social factors, such as racial discrimination, community disadvantages, parenting practices, stressful life events, and role transitions, influence individual offending and social development across the life course. In one prominent line of her research, Dr. Burt investigates how interpersonal racial discrimination increases the risks of individual offending and familial racial socialization provides resilience among African American youth. She has recently been awarded a W.E.B. Du Bois Fellowship from the National Institute of Justice to support her research that seeks to advance knowledge on the intersections between racial discrimination, racial socialization, gender, and crime. Although grounded in a sociological perspective, she utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to link various levels of influence and understand risk and resilience pathways. She has published articles a variety of journals, including the American Journal of Sociology, the American Sociological Review, Criminology, Justice Quarterly, and the Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
