Ellen Cohn

Professor Ellen Cohn is the coordinator of the Justice Studies Program and a professor of psychology and justice studies at the University of New Hampshire. Her specialization is the social psychology of law, specifically legal socialization. Along with Professor Sally Ward and others, Professor Cohn was part of the original faculty group which started the Unwanted Sexual Experiences Survey (USES) project in 1988 and has been involved in the three subsequent USES panels. Elizabeth’s project, she said, was “interesting and challenging” because of the amount of data collected (over 2300 paper surveys.) Writing for Inquiry’s broad audience, Professor Cohn feels, is “useful as a beginning process to publication,” and she hopes her students will go on to publish in scholarly journals in their fields.
