Doctoral Student Meg Panichelli

 

School of Social Work PhD Student

Meg completed her BA in Women's & Gender Studies in 2005 and her MSW in 2010, both from West Chester University of PA. Her primary interests revolve around feminist teaching and research methodologies. Prior to starting school she taught sexual violence prevention education in Santa Fe, New Mexico and coordinated a harm reduction program for sex workers and drug users in Philadelphia, PA. As a white, queer, femme, and feminist she enters teaching and research through the lens of these identities, work experiences, education, and life experiences in which she believes weave together, and cannot be separated or unattached to professional and academic work. Her interests in research, activism, and teaching include: Anti-oppressive social work practice and research, critical feminisms, intersections of sexuality and drug use, sex work and academia, examining privilege in sex work and sex worker activism, intimate partner violence and sexual violence in queer and transgender communities, intersections of privilege, and teaching about sexuality and consent.
