Colloquium: Gender and Gambling-Motivate Crime
Presenter: Michelle L. Malkin, Doctoral Student, School of Criminal Justice, Michigan State University
Does gender have an influence on gambling-related crime? Malkin's presentation will explore the role of gender in compulsive gambling, breaking down data to gain a fuller understanding of the motivations and types of crimes committed by gambling addicts. She will also examine social, economic, employment, and legal consequences people faced due to gambling addiction.
She is currently conducting a study on the consequences of gambling addiction and intends to expand the study to focus on those convicted of gambling-motived crimes to better assess their experiences in the criminal justice system and the criminal consequences of gambling addiction. This presentation will include the initial results of her pilot study collected from May 2017 through March 2018.
Malking is an Eadington Fellow in the UNLV Center for Gaming Research, part of the Special Collections & Archives in the University Libraries.
This event is free and open to the public.
