Dates: June 18 - July 13, 2018
This course is an exploration of the fundamental theories and empirical research that sociologists use to study deviant behavior. It seeks to identify, analyze, and explain different forms of norm violations, and society reacts to them. Topics include disability as deviance, obedience to authority, sex work, pornography, eugenics, the Holocaust and crimes against the disabled, and the legalization of same-sex marriage. There is one textbook for the course: Erich Goode, Deviant Behavior (11th ed.; Routledge 2016). ISBN 9781138191907
This is an online course given over a condensed time period. Students should expect to devote significant time to the course during its relatively brief duration and be prepared to participate on a daily basis.
The course grade will be based on three objective examinations, several discussion contributions and a video project, as well as optional papers.
