Shaun L. Gabbidon was born in England. He earned a Ph.D in Criminology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
His first book, The Criminological Writings of W.E.B. DuBois: A Historical Analysis, provided important insights into W.E.B. DuBois’ research regarding crime in the United States - as it pertained to the experience of African Americans - and how DuBois foreshadowed later research findings in the area of criminology. He is also known for his book, Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime, in which he critically examines and evaluates the theories of criminologists such as Biko Agozino and J. Phillippe Rushton.
Gabbidon is a former professor at the Center for Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and has been named a fellow at Harvard University’s W.E.B. DuBois Institute for Afro-American Research. The Division on People of Color and Crime of the American Society of Criminology have twice honored Gabbidon. He was honored with the 2015 Julius Debro Award and the 2016 Outstanding Teaching Award.
Today, he is a Distinguished Professor of Criminal Justice at the Penn State Harrisburg, School of Public Affairs—only the second individual in the history of Penn State to receive such an honor. He is also editor of Race and Justice: An International Journal.
