Lecture 1 - Lombroso and the Origins of Criminal Identification
On a dark and stormy night, a man – Cesare Lombroso – sits in his study contemplating the skull of a well-known, recently executed criminal. What he sees there revolutionizes the study of crime and criminal identification for decades. Join us for the story of the origins of criminology and the first attempt to identify what it is that separates criminals from the rest of the population.

This lecture is the first in a four-lecture series, all of which take place in Cazenovia College's McDonald Lecture Hall in Eckel Hall. Read the media release for more information about this lecture series.
