Primary Instructor:

This course provides an introduction to the sociological study of crime, criminality, and criminal victimization. The course includes analysis of differing definitions of 'crime' and the politics involved in the creation of new criminal categories(e.g., 'hate crime'), investigation of the problematic nature of criminal statistics, and review of major theoretical explanations of the nature and causes of crime. The social patterning of criminal acts and criminal victimization is also investigated across a variety of crime types including violent, property, white collar, and the crimes of elite members of society. Throughout, attention is given to the ways that crime categories, criminal activity, and criminal victimization are structured by race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.
