SOC 409 - Crime and Justice


The American press, in recent times, has been replete with stories of the interface of crime, justice, race, class, and gender. How do we understand justice, not as an abstract principle, but a socially constructed human experience, defining crime differently from person to person, time and place, and constructing societal responses of judgment and punishment? Answering this question cuts to the core of U S values. We will explore the crucial role of Sociology in understanding crime & justice as social constructs. Course Codes: BR.
