Sociology Colloquium
Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption
A Talk with Author Nancy Mullane

Thursday, November 1, 2012
11:40 am-12:45 pm, McLaren 252

Life After Murder is an intimately reported, utterly compelling story of five convicted murderers sentenced to life with the possibility of parole. One had shot his wife’s lover; another killed a man in a botched burglary; a third killed a teenager in a car crash as he fled the police; the fourth stabbed a man in a gang fight; and the fifth shot an innocent man during an armed robbery. It follows each man’s struggle for redemption, their legal battles to make good on the state’s promise of parole, and the challenge of resuming, twenty-plus years down the road, the life he left behind.

Nancy Mullane develops, reports, and produces feature stories for Public Radio International’s This American Life, National Public Radio and the NPR affiliate KALW News-Crosscurrents in San Francisco. With the support of the Open Society Foundation, she is producing a two-hour radio documentary telling the audio stories of men and women convicted of murder. The two-hour, four-part documentary will air nationally in 2012. She is a member of the Society for Professional Journalists, the Association of Independents in Radio, and the International Women’s Media Foundation. In 2011, Nancy was the recipient of a National Edward R. Murrow Award.
