Abstract

Race, gender, and exposure to various types of media have been identified as important predictors of fear of crime (Callanan 2012; Schafer, Huebner, and Bynum 2006; Smith and Torstensson 1997). However, previous research has largely failed to take an intersectional approach when testing this relationship. Our research finds evidence that the relationship between media consumption and fear of crime is explained differently across race and gender combinations. This identifies a need for future intersectional research on fear of crime.
