Homicide in America: from mass murder to spousal killing, can America's homicide problem be solved?

Date: Thursday, January 24, 2013

Time: 4:30 - 5:30 PM

Room/Location: Saxbe Auditorium


Contact: Fred Andrle

Americans' risk of being murdered is higher than in any first-world democracy. We'll look at causes and potential remedies.

A conversation with Randolph Roth, Professor of History at the Ohio State University. He is author of American Homicide. The book is an interregional, internationally comparative study of homicide in the United States from colonial times to the present. It examines patterns of murder among adults in an effort to understand how and why the United States has become the world’s most homicidal affluent society.

This public program is one of a series of Conversations in the Humanities sponsored by the OSU Humanities Institute. Homicide in America is co-sponsored by the OSU Department of History and the Moritz College of Law.

Conversations in the Humanities is a recurring program that features discussions of issues of public importance with leading experts. All events are moderated by Humanities Institute Associate Fred Andrle.
