University Forum: Things Are Not What They SeemWhen: Mar. 11, 2014, 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Campus Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum / Harry Reid Center
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium
Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "A Skeptic’s Take on Studying Cross-National Homicide Rates: Things Are Not What They Seem," a talk by William Pridemore, distinguished professor of criminal justice and criminology, Georgia State University.
Living free from interpersonal violence is a fundamental component of quality of life and nations vary in their ability to provide this protection to citizens. Research on the sociocultural characteristics associated with national homicide rates led many to draw strong conclusions. Using clear and specific examples this talk will demonstrate why we should be skeptical of some scholars’ use of theory, data, method, and results – and thus the scientific record – on this topic.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
