Dr Angela Dwyer is an Associate Professor in Police Studies and Emergency Management at the School of Social Sciences and Deputy Director of the Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies (TILES). Her research on how sexuality, gender, and sex diversity influences policing contributed to founding the niche discipline area of queer criminology, and she is founding co-chair of the Division of Queer Criminology for the American Society of Criminology. She is also Secretary of Equality Tasmania and Just Equal.

Biography

Angela joined the University of Tasmania in November 2015. Previously, she was a Lecturer (2007-2011) and Senior Lecturer (2011-2015) with the School of Justice, Faculty of Law, at the Queensland University of Technology. In 2012, she was a Visiting Fellow with the Department of Sociology, Social Policy, and Criminology at the University of Liverpool, and a Visiting Fellow at the School of Law, Birkbeck College, University of London.

Angela’s research expertise around police-LGBTIQ relationships directly informs strategic advice to police organisations around Australia about policing LGBTIQ communities and police liaison programs and she presents upskilling workshops to senior managers on LGBTIQ workplace issues (for instance Department of Police, Fire, and Emergency Management, Tasmania). She also delivers keynote addresses at leading flagship LGBTIQ community events and she undertakes advocacy for legislative change to protect LGBTIQ people in Tasmania (Equality Tasmania) and nationally (Just Equal). Angela also mentors students and scholars around the world focused on LGBTIQ people involved in criminal processing systems.

Angela is the course coordinator of a Professional Honours program linked with the promotional pathways of Victorian and Tasmanian police officers. Angela teaches serving police officers skills around leadership and critical incident management to create more critically thinking police leaders, especially around policing vulnerable communities.

Expertise

Angela uses queer criminological theories and ideas to advance our understanding of how policing happens on the front line with LGBTIQ people around the world. She has extensive experience as a qualitative researcher and she has conducted interviews, focus groups, observation, document analysis, and discourse analysis, in addition to experience with survey design. She has conducted semi-structured interviews across multiple projects with LGBTIQ people and LGBTIQ police officers. She partners with policing, government, and LGBTIQ community organisations around Australia and has received more than $1.1 million in competitive research funding to conduct collaborative research projects around these issues.

Areas of research expertise include:

  • LGBTIQ people and frontline policing
  • Service enhancement programs for LGBTIQ people being policed (such as LGBTI police liaison programs)
  • LGBTIQ people and their experiences of criminal processing systems
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender police histories
  • Queer criminological theories/research methodologies

Collaboration

Angela frequently collaborates with queer criminologists and researchers across a range of disciplines, co-authoring and co-editing publications with scholars in policing, sociology, psychology, policy, public health, criminology, law, and anthropology. She partners with policing organisations (including Tasmania Police, Victoria Police, New South Wales Police Force, Queensland Police Service, Western Australia Police), government organisations (Tasmania State Service, Tasmania Fire Service, Tasmania Surf Life Saving, Tasmania State Emergency Service, Ambulance Tasmania) and community organisations (including Working It Out, ACON, Queensland AIDS Council, Twenty 10, Open Doors, Red Cross, Queensland PCYC).

LGBTIQ+ Tasmanian community survey (2020)$18,922
Description
We are conducting this study so the Tasmanian Government can better understand the experiences of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) community in accessing and using government services. The project will identify issues that are of strongest interest to the LGBTIQ+ community and inform decisions of the Tasmanian Government in relation to delivering services to this community over the next three years. The results of this study will form the basis for a refreshed Whole of Government Framework for LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians and Action Plan 2020 2023.

Religious freedom, LGBT+ employees, and the right to discriminate. (2020 - 2022)$575,000
Description
The project will contribute to Australias national interest through identifying effective Australian policies andpractices for managing religious freedom and LGBT+ rights in the workplace. This addresses a pressing contemporary social and cultural issue. In the medium to longer term, the research will provide economic and social benefits through identifying ways in which religious freedom and LGBT+ rights can be successfully negotiated in the workplace so as to inform institutional decision-making and public dialogue. Our comparative research will place Australia in the context of other modern democracies responses to religious freedom and LGBT+ rights. The research will enhance the international visibility of uniquely Australian solutions to these complex issues.

Understanding acceptance and discrimination for LGBTI employees in Tasmanian workplaces (2019)$13,455
Description
This research project will provide an overview and knowledge base of the lived experience of LGBTI+ employees in Tasmanian workplaces. Considerable progress has been made in terms of acceptance and tolerance for the LGBTI+ community in the Tasmanian community as evidenced by the strong Yes vote in the 2017 Marriage Equality Survey. However, if and how this acceptance and tolerance has transferred to LGBTI+ employees in Tasmanian workplaces is less clear.

A dumping ground or a refuge? Investigating how LGBTIQ young people come to be in flexi schools (2018)$10,759
Description
Flexi schools are increasingly populated by vulnerable, marginalised young people excluded from mainstream schooling populations (Te Riele 2016; Pennacchia et al 2016). Gender variant and sexuality diverse young people are one group that experience substantial marginalisation and vulnerability, with research showing they experience significant harassment in Australian schooling environments (Robinson et al 2014). Growing Up Queer found more than eight per cent (n = 91) of young people had to move schools and more than six per cent (n = 70) disengaged from school completely (Robinson et al 2014). Abuse in schools is also increasing (Hillier et al 2010), with youth reporting of homophobic violence increasing from 69% in 1998 (Hillier et al 1998), to 74% in 2004 (Hillier, Turner, & Mitchell 2005), and 80% in 2010 (Hillier et al 2010). We also know these young people are more likely to be part of criminal justice systems internationally (Himmelstein and Bruckner 2011).The proposed pilot research will be the first to ask: are flexi schools being used to funnel gender variant and sexuality diverse young people away from mainstream schools; what leads to their exclusion from mainstream schools; and how are they involved criminal justice systems? This is vital to better understand: (a) whether mainstream schools are not accommodating, and therefore excluding, the complex experiences of gender variant and sexuality diverse young people; (b) whether they are disengaged from all schooling environments; and (c) whether they are engaged in criminal justice systems. The study conducts qualitative interviews with flexi school staff about how gender variant and sexuality diverse young people present in flexi schools and what the issues are for these young people. The study will also develop and trial a survey of flexi school staff and students, to be deployed in a national research project

Relationships Between LGBTIQ Tasmanians and Tasmania Police (2017 - 2019)$19,943
Description
Tasmania Police developed an LGBTI police liaison program to build relationships with LGBTIQ Tasmanians in recent years, and have invested substantially in creating a tertiary level pathway to professionalise their personnel from police recruits all the way through to Assistant Commissioners and Inspectors. As yet, we have only limited, anecdotal evidence elaborating how these types of investments have improved the relationship between LGBTIQ Tasmanians and Tasmania Police. This research seeks to document this landscape using survey and follow up interviews with LGBTIQ Tasmanians and Tasmania Police officers

Research Supervision

Research supervision is a key focus of the work Angela does as a mentor and she engages in high levels of mentoring with potential and completed/continuing Honours students, and Masters, and PhD students, including students overseas. Topics have included: LGBTQIA+ people’s encounters with police; LGBTIQ+ equality and probation services; police culture change and diversity; transgender health and medical guidelines; female masculinity and police culture; histories of LGBT police liaison programs; police perceptions of lesbian women; bodily integrity in mosh pits; leadership in police PCYCs; disclosure of sexuality and leadership trajectories; and reintegration of ex-offenders. She is also regularly involved with examining PhD, Masters, and Honours theses in Australia and internationally. Angela is particularly interested in supervising topics that explore the nexus between LGBTIQ experience and interactions with police and criminal processing systems.
