Pamela Wilcox received her PhD in Sociology at Duke University in 1994. Her work draws upon environmental criminology and community criminology in order to study crime and victimization incidents within school and community contexts. On this topic, she published (with Francis T. Cullen and Ben Feldmeyer) Communities and Crime:  An Enduring American Challenge (Temple University Press 2018) and (with Kenneth C. Land and Scott A. Hunt) Criminal Circumstances: A Dynamic Multi contextual Criminal Opportunity Theory (Aldine de Gruyter 2003). Her research articles have appeared in journals such as Criminology, Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, Justice Quarterly, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, Journal of Criminal Justice, Victims and Offenders, and Journal of School Violence. Professor Wilcox also co-edited (with Francis T. Cullen) the Encyclopedia of Criminological Theory (Sage, 2010) and the Oxford Handbook of Criminological Theory (Oxford University Press, 2013). In collaboration with Francis T. Cullen and Robert Agnew, she also co-edits Criminological Theory: Past to Present, which is currently in its sixth edition (Oxford University Press, 2018). She teaches in the areas of criminology and crime prevention.
