Special Topic: Crime, Media and Society

Please note: this is archived course information from 2018 for CRIM 205.


The relationship between crime and the media is complex and contradictory. This course investigates this relationship by encouraging students to develop an understanding of how the media help to influence the public views of crime and criminalisation. It will do this by focusing on media portrayals of crime and criminal behaviour, media effects and theories of media and communication.
