Anne Redding, chair of the School of Justice Studies at Santa Barbara City College, will present the annual faculty lecture tomorrow on “Crime Across the Curriculum.”
Redding’s lecture will examine the impact of crime across the spectrum of human experience. “Crime is a living organism that is feeding off social deterioration, rage, and human fragility,” Redding told Baraa Alkassir of the campus paper, Channels.
“I wouldn’t say that there is a crime culture in America. However, our culture has a great fascination with basic human interest in crime,” Redding told Alkassir.
Redding was selected to deliver the lecture by a committee based on nominations by her students and peers. We have heard her lecture many times on the Black Dahlia killing and she gives her students an excellent synthesis of this complex case.
Redding will give “Crime Across the Curriculum” on Wednesday, March 21, at 2:30 at Garvin Theatre on the SBCC campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
