Dr Selina Doran

Researcher, Risk Management Authority


My doctoral thesis examined how ‘school shooting’ incidents are constructed by news media coverage, as well as the public reactions and the policy legacies of them. The overall aim of this thesis was to map and explore the cultures of fear generated by two school shootings which occurred in the United States, using them as case studies through which to examine the policy implications of managing school shootings in an educational context and the broader gun-related movements pertaining to attempts to prevent and negate the threat of school shootings.
