Alumnus to Speak on Forensic Psychology
SUNY Plattsburgh alumnus Dr. Joshua Duntley will return to the campus for a two-day symposium on forensic psychology.
Duntley, an associate professor of social and behavioral sciences at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, recently received national attention for the CSI summer camps that he helped found and now co-directs. He appeared on NBC’s “Today” show and in the Wall Street Journal discussing the camps, which give high school students hands-on experience as would-be forensic detectives.
At the college’s second annual Spectrum Interdisciplinary Symposium, Duntley, a 1994 psychology graduate who also holds a master’s in liberal studies from SUNY Plattsburgh, will give the keynote address, “The Mind of the Stalker,” 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Warren Ballrooms, Angell College Center.
From 8 to 9 p.m. he will join Assistant Chief of University Police Jerry Lottie, Director of Residence Life Bryan Hartman and Professor of Sociology, Affirmative Action Officer and Title IX Coordinator Lynda Ames in a panel discussion.
Day Two will feature a brown-bag luncheon at noon, titled “Understanding the Criminal Mind: Forensic Psychology,” as well as a 1 p.m. presentation on Duntley’s CSI camps and a 3:30 p.m. question-and-answer session.
In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in criminal justice and psychology, Duntley is the author of numerous publications. His research examines violence, victimization and human mating. He and his colleagues have conducted research on stalking and have created a website to assist victims of stalking in the state of Texas.
All events will take place in the Warren Ballrooms of Angell College Center and are free and open to the public. No registration required.
