SOCL19072   Criminality, Deviance & Social Control

This course outlines how and why certain types of behaviour come to be identified as bizarre, weird, deviant, unacceptable, alien and so on, and how these behaviours become subject to social control. In doing this, it explores the moral and political nature of the defining process. It also focuses on the comparison of delinquency with corporate crime, and examines drugs, sexual crimes, domestic violence and prostitution. Most of all, it considers the relationship between power and the labelling of some behaviours as socially unacceptable.
