Dr. Zoann Snyder is an associate professor of sociology at Western Michigan University and director of graduate studies for sociology at Western Michigan University.
Snyder's published research includes:
- "Keeping Families Together: The Importance of Maintaining Mother-Child Contact for Incarcerated Women." Women and Criminal Justice.
- "The Power of Place: Two Examples of Community Partnerships and Student Experiences." In Javier Trevino and Karen McCormack (eds.) Service Sociology and Academic Engagement in Social Problems.
- "What about Women? The Representation of Women in Media, Crime, and Violence Textbooks." In Drew Humphries (ed.) Women, Violence, and the Media.
Snyder is working on a new area of inquiry about women's physical fitness at mid-life which focuses on women engaged in competitive sports after age 40. She uses a feminist theoretical framework to guide her research, and qualitative inquiry to engage a small core of runners and bodybuilders in dialogue about their personal paths to competitive sport at an age when many have chosen more leisurely exercise routines.
