Syllabus:

This course explores changes that have occurred in recent years in the sociological study of crime and deviance. It explores key perspectives relating to 'new' explanations of crime, poses the question what is to be done about it, disputes the crimes that we should focus on and ultimately asks whether we should abandon the discipline of criminology. The initial focus is upon writings on governmentality, risk and the increased use of management accountancy to explain how crime has become reconstructed in late modernity. Central to this discussion is David Garland's seminal text 'The Culture of Control'. The second element is concerned with the interplay between punishment, victims and justice, critically exploring newly emerging underlying principles in the implementation of contemporary criminal law. Finally, examining crimes of the powerful and shades of deviance, the question is posed whether we should abandon criminology in favour of the study of social harm.
