Interdisciplinary Research Center
The Center focuses on perpetrators and/or victims of interpersonal violence and addresses the causes, effects, treatment, and prevention of all types of violence, including (but not limited to) domestic violence, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual assault, physical child abuse, and violent crime.
Research on the Rise
The Center facilitates cross-disciplinary research via its network of scholars who communicate regularly and with a shared vision and goal. Because of this network, in the past year, collaborations among CRIV faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and/or students resulted in 10 external grant submissions (total amount requested: $13,081,016), 5 external grants that were funded (total costs: $6,122,855), 33 papers published in peer-reviewed journals, and 16 presentations at 13 national and 3 international conferences in 2021.
What Are the Advantages of Interdisciplinary Studies?
Interdisciplinary collaboration draws from two or more academic disciplines to facilitate discourse, generate innovative new scholarship, and support the training of new scholars in the field. The Center’s interdisciplinary focus promotes programming to achieve these aims in a variety of ways, including (1) A Distinguished Speaker Series [https://violence.gsu.edu/distinguished-speaker-series/] which features nationally recognized scholars, (2) a small grants program [https://violence.gsu.edu/seed-grant/] that supports innovative research ideas with a high potential to make a significant scientific or community impact, and (3) a Student Seminar Series [https://violence.gsu.edu/student-seminar-series/] led by Center faculty which exposes students to a range of interdisciplinary research on interpersonal violence.

Welcome, to our new colleague!
Dr. Elizabeth (Liz) Mosley, PhD, MPH, is a Limited Term Clinical Assistant Professor with the Mark Chaffin Center for Healthy Development (MCCHD) at Georgia State University School of Public Health. She investigates how social determinants (including gender, race/ethnicity, class, and stigma) affect sexual and reproductive health equity in the US and globally. Her research applies quantitative, qualitative, multi-level, and community-engaged methods to study a number of topics including family planning; pregnancy support interventions; HIV/AIDS; and gender-based violence across North and Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia. Dr. Mosley completed her PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan, where she was also a NIH predoctoral trainee in public health demography with the Population Studies Center. Her dissertation used nationally-representative surveys to analyze attitudes toward abortion, gender roles, and economic equality in the U.S. and South Africa. From 2011-2012, she served as a maternal and child health Global Health Corps Fellow in Uganda with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Dr. Mosley completed her MPH at the University of North Carolina, where her Capstone project addressed sexual and domestic violence with diverse stakeholders across the state. During her MPH, Dr. Mosley was trained by UNC BirthPartners and DONA International; she still volunteers as a full spectrum doula.
