Randolph-Macon College will host Jack Levin, who will present "Mass Murder and Serial Killing Exposed" on April 23, 2014 at 6 p.m. in the SunTrust Theater, Brock Commons (304 Henry Street). Map and Directions
Serial Killers don’t look like the glassy-eyed lunatics depicted in slasher films. Their ability to appear to be “the boy next door” is part of the secret of their success. Yet serial killers share at least two characteristics that, in combination, make them into killing machines: they have an excessive need for power and lack any sense of conscience or human warmth.
Levin is the Brudnick Professor of Sociology and Criminology at Northeastern University in Boston, where he co-directs the Center on Violence and Conflict and teaches courses in the sociology of violence and hate. He has authored or co-authored 30 books and published more than 150 articles in professional journals and newspapers. He appears frequently on national television programs, and he has spoken to a wide variety of community, academic, and professional groups.
This event is sponsored by the Committee on Assemblies and Special Events (CASE) and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and is free and open to the public.
