WMST 267 - Gender and Crime 3 s.h.

This course sociologically analyzes and deconstructs the common sense of the social world with regards to gender and crime. Students will develop their sociological imagination and critical thinking skills as they explore a variety of substantive issues within criminology. Topics include but are not limited to violence and sex work, domestic violence, and street and white collar crime. The course explores ways in which crime and deviance interface with women and gender studies, and feminist theory and methods. To the extent that gender intersects with other axes of social inequality, we deal with other aspects of social location within the scope of the course.
Cross-listed as CRJ 267 .
Prerequisite(s): 3 s.h. SOC.
