BGSU sociologists take closer look at teen dating violence
Everyone has heard the harrowing, sad stories of domestic violence reported by the media. Three BGSU sociologists hope their ongoing research can be applied to doing something about it at an early age.
Dr. Peggy Giordano, a Professor Emeritus of sociology, and Drs. Wendy Manning and Monica Longmore have received nearly $600,000 from the National Institute of Justice for further study of teenage dating violence and contexts in which it occurs.
The work is an extension of their Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study, in which more than 1,300 Lucas County teens have been interviewed four times since 2000.
In celebration of the holiday season, the University Choral Society and guest soloists will join the Toledo Symphony Orchestra to present Handel’s “Messiah” at 8 p.m. Dec. 2 in Kobacker Hall of the Moore Musical Arts Center.
