Dr. Croll's research interests include identity construction, narrative, and gender and trauma, interests central to her recent book, Following Sexual Abuse: A Sociological Interpretation of Identity Re/Formation in Reflexive Therapy (University of Toronto Press). Other research foci include the private/social shaping and sustaining of identity in the face of discrimination and dehumanizing social institutions, as well as technology and society. These areas underpin her current research on the Magdalene Laundries in locales such as Ireland, Australia, and New Brunswick.
