Public Criminology: The Public Scholar in the New Media Landscape

Featured Visitor:
Robert Cribb, Senior Investigative Journalism, Toronto Star;
Journalism Instructor, Ryerson University and
Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

Michael Kempa, Criminology, University of Ottawa

Robert Cribb is one of Canada’s most awarded investigative journalists and an instructor in investigative journalism at both Ryerson University and the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto. His penetrating work delves into such criminological issues as government corruption, assisted suicide, police abuse of authority, and white collar crime:

Mr. Cribb is collaborating with Prof. Michael Kempa to build new ways for scholars and depth journalists to conduct and communicate research in the public interest.  The basic premise behind their collaboration is that academics often have the data and insights necessary to inform depth journalism, while skilled journalists have the story telling and legal expertise necessary to get the message to the public. As such, collaboration from the inception of research projects – right from the design phase - will serve the missions of scholars and journalists very well.

On Thursday, 06 April, Mr. Cribb will present a special open seminar on the future of media-scholar collaboration, reflecting on projects he has run and is currently a part of, in this regard. 

The class takes place between 2:30-5:30pm: the open session takes place from 2:30-3:50pm (MRT 218); the second half of the session from 4pm-5:30 (FSS 14005) would involve direct work with the students registered in the class on their particular projects.
