CRI 374 - Media, Crime, and Criminal Justice (3 cr.)


This course critically critiques and analyzes the historical and contemporary relationship between media, crime, and criminal justice. It examines how crime victims, offenders and the criminal justice system are depicted in popular culture - television, movies, music, literature - and social and news media. The course also critiques how these portrayals impact victims and offenders, crime and justice, and influence politics. In addition, the course includes an analysis of how race, class and gender influences the ways in which the media portrays different types of victims and offenders, and the media’s culpability in how these individuals are punished. The theoretical foundations for exploring media, crime, and justice are also explored in this course.
