About Us

Crimcast is an online community devoted to conversations about criminology and criminal justice issues that are critical, yet accessible to the academic, student, criminal justice practitioner, and lay person alike.  Check out our blogs, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and drop in often for new ideas and information. 

Crimcast is sponsored by The Center for Crime & Popular Culture at St. Francis College, Brooklyn, New York.  Additional support has been provided by the Criminal Justice Department at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

The Center for Crime & Popular Culture serves all those interested in issues pertaining to the intersection of crime, social control, and popular culture. The Center is committed to engaging students and fostering critical thinking about how images of crime and justice permeate our daily lives. The Center hosts special events, lectures, and guest speakers on the St. Francis College campus, each geared toward understanding the production of popular culture and how cultural artifacts shape and reflect public attitudes toward offenders, victims, and the operations of the criminal justice system.
