Content

This unit engages with core issues shaping popular perceptions and representations of crime. Crime is literally everywhere in the media. It occupies the majority of prime-time television. It fills the majority of newspapers. But to what extent can we equate what we read, hear or view with the realities of crime? The unit engages with core issues shaping criminology as we unravel the complex relationship between crime, media and justice.
