Description: A multi-faceted exploration of crime. We explore how crime is socially defined, perceived and portrayed. Next we analyze empirical patterns and theories of crime. Lastly, we examine societal responses, focusing on policing and punishment. Material will encompass both classical/foundational and contemporary scholarship, and a mix of empirical and theoretical work.
