Course Description: This course will examine writing, analysis, and inquiry through the lens of true crime media, which has experienced a surge in popularity over the last several years. Topics include: true crime media ethics; misinformation and disinformation in true crime media; the phenomenon of the “citizen detective;” Missing White Women Syndrome and how true crime media portrays (or ignores) marginalized communities; and our roles as true crime consumers. Our class will explore these themes by reading academic and popular news articles, listening to podcasts, and viewing documentaries/docuseries about true crime.
