Crime and Culture
1. SOCI 2806 - Crime and Culture This course explores the relationship between crime and culture, in particular the proposition that culture produces crime and, through its normative social rules and codes, defines and classifies certain actions as "criminal" and "deviant" while others are "normal" and "permissible." It critically investigates how culture and cultural products like movies, television shows and comic books present and reinforce this dichotomy through construction of heroes and villains as well as good vs evil.
