An examination of the relationship(s) between gender and criminal offending, detection of and societal reaction to that offending, and victimization. We will look at the role gender and gendered experiences play in creating, legitimating, and perpetuating the fear of crime on masculinity and the role it plays in defining offenders and victims, and on the unique challenges gender variation raises in the context of the criminal and legal systems.

Selected topics in Black Studies. May be repeated with change of content/topic.

Selected topics of contemporary relevance in the field of Crime and Justice studies. Active discussions, mini-lectures, filed simulations, student presentations, role-playing, guest speakers, and field observations may be utilized. A significant research paper will be required.
