Researcher(s): Daniela Jauk
Dani Jauk conducted an individual research project on violence against transgendered people in Ohio from Fall 2007 to Fall 2010. The project was based on participant observation of transgender advocacy and support groups in Akron, Clevand, and Columbus as well as interviews with transgender identified individuals about their life time experiences with violent victimization. The ARMlab equipment (tape recorder, video recorder, NVivo software) was used to collect and analyze the qualitative data in the form of fieldnotes, interview transcripts, and images. Dani has received the “Allied Student Activist of the Year 2008 – Transgender Illumination Award of the greater Cleveland LGBT community” in November 2008 for her work and collaboration with the local community.
