Biography

Professor Phillips’ research focuses on the intersection between crime, popular culture, and popular media. Her book Beyond Blurred Lines: Rape Culture in Popular Media (Rowman & Littlefield), traces how the concept of “rape culture” resonated in a variety of spheres, including television, gaming, comic book culture, and college campuses.

Her book Comic Book Crime: Truth, Justice, and the American Way (NYU Press), co-authored with Staci Strobl (University of Wisconsin-Platteville), is a cultural criminological analysis of themes of crime and justice in contemporary American comic books.

Professor Phillips is director for the Center for Crime and Popular Culture a center designed to foster critical thinking about how representations of crime and justice in popular media permeate our daily lives. The Center hosts special events, lectures, and guest speakers on campus, each geared toward understanding the production of popular culture and how cultural artifacts shape and reflect public attitudes toward crime, justice, and the operations of the criminal justice system,
