Examining the Examiner: Covering Crime in Peterborough
In the first article for her Community Based Research project with Arthur, Alexia Kambanis examines the trappings of crime coverage in Peterborough. Does the Examiner’s heavy handed and often classist reporting lead readers to feel more unsafe? Is the upswell in the true crime genre--of podcasts, books, reporting--affecting the way crime is reported? Alexia is Arthur’s researcher in residence this Spring and she will be working on answering big questions about crime reporting through the lens of our very own, homegrown, Peterborough publications.
