  • Mapping Geographies of Violence

    Edited by Heather A. Kitchin Dahringer and James J. Brittain     October 2017

    Mapping Geographies of Violence presents readers with a larger understanding and analysis of how violence, far from just an expression of individuals or groups, is rooted in social constructs like class, patriarchy and racism.

  • Research Ethics and the Internet

    Negotiating Canada’s Tri-Council Policy Statement

    By Heather A. Kitchin Dahringer     January 2007

    Kitchin helps readers pick their way through the minefield that stands in the way of all who seek to find clarity as to the ethics of Internet research. The Internet poses new challenges to researchers, and the author clearly discusses these challenges in all their complexity. Issues of copyright, privacy and ethical use of Internet materials loom large. Kitchin analyzes contradictions between the federal Tri- Council Policy Statement and university-based research ethics boards and offers a simple solution to policy makers who grapple with the ethics of internet research.
