social context of infamous crimes, the emerging "science" of
criminology, the intersection of crime and geography, theories of
words and pictures in relation to crime (i.e., woodcuts of crime
scenes, riots, rebellions), pamphleteers and their impact on the
emerging genre of "crime reporting," criminal biography, crime and
economy, crime and consumerism.
