Section Description

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

Section Expectation
