SOC 211 - Social Deviance
This course examines the dynamic social, economic, and cultural processes through which identities and behaviors are constructed as deviant. Topics include, but are not limited to the relationships between race, class, gender, sexuality, disability and the social construction of deviance. Utilizing sociological theories we will move away from understanding deviant behavior as a personal and individual phenomenon and rather focus on deviance as a social construction that is negotiated and contested. Emphasis will be placed on the role of the state, as well as historical, political, cultural and economic dimensions of deviance and social control.
