Steven Gorelick "draws upon a background in media studies, sociology, and criminology to examine media coverage of crime and violence, with special emphasis on the impact of high-profile acts of violence on communities, media institutions and the fabric of social life. His publications have appeared in the Journal of Crime and Delinquency, the Media Studies Journal of the Freedom Forum at Columbia University, and Children's Beat: A Journal of Media Coverage. His most recent project is a study of the journalist as perpetrator, an examination of cases from Nazi Germany to Rwanda in America and the ways in which media institutions and journalists have been active participants in genocide and human rights violations."
