Examination of major theories and research in the field of deviance and social control, with special emphasis on recent empirical advances and comparative perspectives.   
As a result of this course, students will be able to: (1) examine and compare alternative theories and the empirical validity of each, (2) identify the wide variety of acts that fall under the rubric of “deviant behavior” and how they are socially structured, (3) investigate how deviance is portrayed in popular culture, particularly the mass media, (4) assess public policies and identify normative trends in the U.S. and elsewhere (e.g., criminalization of currently legal practices, decriminalization of currently illegal practices).
