Conference history and Goals

The conference was originally established by Dr. Franklin T. Wilson as part of the University of Central Missouri’s Institute of Justice and International Studies Annual Conference and originally entitled “Crime and Popular Culture Conference” in 2008. After being invited to bring the conference to Indiana State University Dr. Wilson renamed the conference the Annual International Crime, Media and Popular Culture Studies Conference. The conference was held for the first time at Indiana State University in 2009 where it is currently still housed.

The Annual International Crime, Media and Popular Culture Studies Conference was established to encourage an international cross-disciplinary exchange between both academic scholars and practitioners who are engaged in research, teaching and practices associated with crime, deviance, history, social justice, policy, and law and their relationship with the media and popular culture. The conference serves as a forum for the dissemination of knowledge associated with these areas of study in an effort to engender further growth of the discipline among students, academicians and practitioners. The conference welcomes quantitative, qualitative and mixed methodology researches equally.
