CRMN 2030U – Social Control


This course will examine theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of social control, which might be understood as the ways in which societies respond to behaviour deemed inappropriate, deviant, or even criminal. Our focus will be on both informal and formal methods of social control, and the inter-relationship among them. We will discuss the cultural, structural, political, and ideological forces that have sustained and transformed both systems of social control during modernity and late modernity. Particular attention will be paid to the ways in which identity (e.g., race, class and gender) shapes one’s relationship to these mechanisms of social control.
