About Me:
Mahri Irvine is an anthropologist who studies sexual violence and rape culture in the United States. She received her PhD in Anthropology from American University in 2014. Her dissertation research examined how rape culture impacted the lives of formerly incarcerated women in Washington, D.C.; she studied how sexual victimization played a direct role in women’s decisions to become involved in crime, and how three different types of violence interconnected to pose unique challenges for these women. Dr. Irvine has studied sexual assault and gender inequalities for thirteen years, with three years of direct experience as a hospital rape crisis advocate and hotline counselor for Chicago Rape Victim Advocates and the DC Rape Crisis Center. She was also a volunteer for Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault for six years. At her research site, she facilitated a gender-based violence support group for formerly and currently incarcerated women for one and a half years. Currently an adjunct professor at American University and St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Dr. Irvine designs and teaches classes about gender-based violence, women’s and gender studies, and anthropology. She is a member of the American Anthropological Association, Association for Feminist Anthropology, Anthropology and Mental Health Interest Group, Society for Anthropology of North America, and the Society for Psychological Anthropology, as well as several other professional organizations.
