Lynn K. Harvey is Associate Professor of Sociology and Interim Chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work. He teaches General Sociology, Sociology of the Family, and Senior Seminar. Dr. Harvey has been at Winston-Salem State since 1997 and was a faculty researcher at the university's Center for Community Safety from its opening in January 2001 until 2007. His research at the Center related generally to the question of how to reduce violent crime, and he has continued to do research on domestic violence and to evaluate strategies aimed at increasing community safety.
Dr. Harvey is the lead author of an article scheduled for publication in the Spring 2013 issue of the Journal of Applied Social Science, "Systematic Observations of Neighborhood Order: Assessing the Methodology in Evaluating a Community-based Initiative." With the same group of colleagues, he is co-author of another paper that has been accepted by the same journal. That article is based on focus groups Dr. Harvey conducted with residents of three neighborhoods where a strategy to eliminate an illegal drug market was implemented. Also in the Spring of 2013, Dr. Harvey plans to present "Danger in Intimate Partner Violence: Does Relationship Status Matter?" at the Southern Sociological Society annual meeting in Atlanta.
