Carol Archbold, associate professor of criminal justice, is scheduled to be interviewed by John Hanson on Friday, Oct. 4, from noon to 12:30 p.m. regarding her study on racial profiling. The interview is part of the nationally syndicated series “In Black America.”
Archbold and four doctoral students in the criminal justice program will have their paper, titled “Newspaper accounts of racial profiling: Accurate portrayal or perpetuation of myth?” in the journal Race and Justice. The study explores how newspapers contribute to the social construction of racial profiling. Specifically, it examines the frequency and context of the presentation of racial profiling by newspapers circulated in Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston from 1986-2010.
A podcast of the interview will be available at http://kut.org/category/programs/in-black-america.
