SOC-340 Cultural Criminology

This course introduces students to the burgeoning 

field of cultural criminology, which views crime
and its control as cultural, creative and
contested constructs. By its nature, cultural
criminology is kaleidoscopic and incorporates
perspectives from fields such as cultural
geography, anthropology, philosophy, postmodern
critical theory, action research, media theory
and urban studies. Students will converse with
and apply this interdisciplinary literature by
exploring how crime and its control intersect
with late modernity, consumer culture,
subcultural style, performance/display, pleasure
and survival. Students produce significant
written and visual work with latitude provided
for creative expression.
