Welcome to episode 52 of Sexology Podcast. Today, I am delighted to welcome Dr. Nickie D. Phillips.
Nickie is an associate professor of criminal justice at St. Francis College, Brooklyn, NY where she teaches courses that include criminology, criminal justice, crime and media, and victimology. She is director of the Center for Crime and Popular Culture serving scholars, students, and laypersons interested in issues pertaining to the intersection of crime, social control, and popular culture. The Center sponsors special events, lectures, and guest speakers on campus, each geared toward understanding how cultural artifacts shape and reflect public attitudes toward offenders, victims, and the operations of the criminal justice system.
Nickie received her Ph.D. from City University of New York Graduate Center in 2006 and holds a M.A. in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Her research interests include media and crime, crime and popular culture, and sexual violence. She is author of Beyond Blurred Lines: Rape Culture in Popular Media (Rowman and Littlefield, 2017) and co-author of Comic Book Crime: Truth, Justice, and the American Way (NYU Press, 2013), the latter of which examined representations of crime and justice in contemporary American comics books through the lens of cultural criminology.
