Have you heard the term moral panic before but you’re not quite sure what it means? We’ll help give you a taste of what it involves – and what part the media plays in it – exploring issues like the lack of coverage on knife crime and how COVID-19’s been reported. Find out how it’s often connected with the values, safety and interests of particular communities and with society at large.

Join this lecture, hosted by Jasneth, a student on our Sociology and Social Policy BA (Hons), to discover how the media can cause moral panics – be prepared to have your preconceived ideas challenged and gain new perspectives.

This event will be of interest to prospective undergraduate students who are considering studying, or have a passion for, sociology.
