Forensic sciences in the media – The ‘CSI effect’ and beyond

This lecture describes media portrayal of forensic sciences in real life and fictional cases. There has been much (probably too much) media interest in the fictional portrayal of forensic science in popular crime shows such as CSI, where it has been argued that CSI may have an effect on jury decisions. There is now a substantial literature on the ‘CSI effect’. However, at least since the time of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, the fictional forensic detective has been hugely influential in our cultural imagination We review an analysis of this literature and research on the supposed effect. In addition to the effects of fictional portrayals of forensic sciences the lecture explores wider media effects e.g. beliefs as to the power of DNA analysis amongst the public and amongst prison populations.
