This Funzing Experience:
Why can't we get enough of Serial Killers and their lives? Why are they such prominent figures in popular culture? What draws us to their stories? Join leading Criminologist & Author Professor Elizabeth Yardley for a thought provoking look into societies most unlikely obsession.

Despite the fact that homicide is one of the rarest forms of crime - and the fact that serial homicide is even rarer - many of our favourite crime films, novels and dramas seem to revolve around serial killers. They have been the staple topic of true crime for many years, filling up our screens, bookshelves and podcast feeds.

But why can't we seem to get enough of them? What draws us to these grisly subjects like a moth to a flame?


Serial Killers are to adults what films about Monsters are to children. In this talk, we will look at the appeal of the serial killer and reveal the key reasons why we love to lose ourselves in the darkest corners of human nature.

Professor Elizabeth Yardley is associate professor of Criminology at Birmingham University. Her recent works include the books "Female Serial Killers in Social Context", "Social Media Homicide Confessions: Stories of killers and their victims"

Venue: White Post Cafe

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
