Primary Instructor:

This course is an introductory sociological analysis of select acts, persons, and identities that are morally condemned. Special emphasis is directed to the co-constitutive relationship of deviance and conventionality, the variability of deviance in time and space, and the political nature of the production and deployment of categories of deviance. Among the topics of inquiry are historical case studies of "legislated" morality (e.g., deviant drinking and opiate use), the development of deviant identities and deviant subcultures, the medicalization of deviance (e.g., non-normative sexual and gender identities), and types and dynamics of social control. The course seeks to encourage and cultivate a critical, reflexive sociological perspective on social life by considering the links between "deviance" and social spheres of power including race, class, gender, and sexuality.
