‘Norwich Works’ podcast returns, focusing on murder and mass homicide

The final week of Norwich University’s fall semester features Monday’s Reading Day, a bonfire social and a podcast featuring criminal justice professor Dr. Elizabeth Gurian.

On Monday’s Reading Day, classes and labs are canceled to let students study. As students crack books, the “Norwich Works” podcast, which returns after a long hiatus, will crack a question, “Is danger always lurking around the corner?”

Dr. Michael Thunberg, an assistant professor in Norwich’s History and Political Science Department and the university’s Honors Program leader, returns as “Norwich Works” host. (Dr. Mark Boonshoft, who co-hosted “Norwich Works” in 2019, has left the university and is now executive director of the Fishkill, New York-based American Society for 18th Century Studies.)

“How well do we really know the people around us?” Thunberg says in his introduction. “Could anyone be a murderer?”

Gurian’s new book, “Serial and Mass Murder: Understanding Multicide through Offending Patterns, Explanations, and Outcomes” was published Sept. 30 by Routledge. She teaches about criminal violence and courts and mentors undergraduate students; her research focuses on multicide (serial and mass murder).

Gurian has won the Board of Fellows Prize and Dana Category I grants in recognition of her teaching, scholarship and service. In 2013, the Vermont Women in Higher Education awarded her the Peggy R. Williams Emerging Professional Award.

— From 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, the Campus Activities Board will hold a design session for the 2022 War Whoop yearbook in Wise Campus Center, Room 218. As the Archives & Special Collections’ “Mining for Old” blog relates, the War Whoop has been a Norwich tradition since 1895, when students Harry Moseley and Fred Thomas launched it. 

… At 7 p.m. Friday, the Campus Activities Board will hold a bonfire social with s’mores and music.

Wherever you’re going, however you’ll celebrate, Norwich University wishes you a safe, happy holiday season and auspicious 2022.
