We examine how true crime, literary fiction and media portrayals shape attitudes and responses to violent crime

This event examines the way that true crime, literary fiction, film and TV drama alongside media portrayals help to shape attitudes and responses to violent crime. We include contributions from academics from a range of disciplines, including sociology, criminology and cultural studies, as well as novelists, film makers, journalists and those who work within the Criminal Justice System. We will include a discussion of crimes such as the Moors Murders and the Harold Shipman case that are both linked to Greater Manchester.

NB: The content of the presentations means that this event is not suitable for under 18s.
