Schneider (born April 16, 1979) is an American-born sociologist and associate professor of law and society at Wilfrid Laurier University.[1] Schneider's research and commentary have been featured in hundreds of news reports across North America[1][2][3][4] including the New York Times[5] and the Vancouver Sun.[6]

Educational background

Schneider received his B.A. summa cum laude in 2002 from Northeastern Illinois University, with a major in sociology and a minor in criminal justice. Schneider was selected as the NEIU 2002 spring commencement speaker [7] He received an M.A. in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology in 2004 from Northern Illinois University[8] Schneider continued his graduate studies in Justice Studies at Arizona State University. In 2008, he graduated from ASU with a Doctoral Degree in Justice Studies.[1]

Appointments and positions

While studying toward his M.A. he was an instructor at NIU. From 2004-2008 Schneider was a part-time instructor and a teaching assistant at ASU. After receiving his PhD in Justice Studies in 2008, Schneider began his career as an assistant professor of sociology at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus where he taught for six years.[1][4] In 2014, Schneider relocated to WLU where he was granted tenure and promoted to the position of Associate Professor of Law & Society.[1]

Areas of research

Schneider's research is qualitative and focuses on how developments in media and technology contribute to changes in social interaction and social control.[4] His research has largely focused on the impact of social media on crime related matters including vigilante justice[9][10][11] and crowd sourced-policing efforts online.[10][12] Much of this research has examined the role of social media in relation to the 2011 Vancouver Stanley Cup riot[9][10][13][14][15] Some of this research is cited in Policing Canada in the 21st Century: New Policing for New Challenges a 2014 Council of Canadian Academies report that addresses the external and internal challenges facing Canada’s police.[16] Other related research has explored the impact of social media on policing and police work in Canada[17][18][19][20]

Schneider's research has also focused on popular culture and social control. Some of this work has examined the relationships between media and popular culture including the framing and censorship of rap music,[21][22] technology and control of student cheating[23] and the use of mobile phone ringtones as individual ways to manage identity[24][25] Other work in the area of popular culture has explored celebrity news coverage and TMZ[26][27]

Other areas of research include public criminology,[13] public sociology[28][29] and "e-public sociology"[30] a form of public sociology that involves publishing sociological materials in online accessible spaces and subsequent interaction with publics in these spaces.[30][31] Schneider's co-edited book The Public Sociology Debate: Ethics and Engagement more broadly explores the practice of public sociology and moral judgements for sociologists concerned with social justice issues[32]
