Interchange – IU Criminal Justice Professor Bill Head


Host Dave Stewart interviews Professor Bill Head of the Department of Criminal Justice at Indiana University, who teaches a course entitled “Crime in the Movies.” From “Scarface”(both versions) to “Batman” to “The Shawshank Redemption”, they discuss how crime is portrayed in the movies, and how the depiction of crime onscreen has changed over time. Each semester Professor Head takes his students to tour the maximum security prison in Terre Haute. He discusses what is seen and learned on those visits, and offers a brief look at IU’s Criminal Justice program.
