May 6, 12pm: Lynn Chancer, “High Profile Crimes Revisited”

In this week’s workshop, Lynn Chancer will speak about “High Profile Crimes Revisited.'” She will return to the analytic framework of her earlier book *High Profile Crimes: When Legal Cases Become Social Causes*, ‘revisiting’ the question of whether this framework applies to current cases involving police deaths and racial and class biases. She will also explore whether new media has affected social movement reactions to recent high profile cases.
