Turning on primetime television, picking up a newspaper, or going to the movies, it is almost impossible to escape representations of criminality, whether in the form of crime scene investigators solving crimes or superheroes facing off against villains of all kinds. Crime has long been a principal focus in literature, and we will engage with literary texts in addition to films, music, and television as well as social science texts and theory. In particular, we will focus on how criminalization in the United States is racialized. We will answer questions such as: what is at stake in how we understand the nature of, meaning, and origins of criminal behavior? How do structures of punishment reflect on our societal values? How do concepts of criminality and punishment intersect with constructions of race, gender and ethnicity? How does the criminal justice system affect the individuals, primarily Black and Latina/o, who are subject to it?

During this course, we will focus on writing analytical essays about the themes and debates in the class. We will write and revise three essays in addition to several shorter assignments. Writing is a collaborative process, which means that there will be substantial in- class collaboration and peer review of each other’s writings. This course will be discussion-based, requiring regular attendance and classroom participation in relation to both the readings and assignments.

Note that non-UHP students can participate in both the KSU in Italy and Galapagos and Ecuador programs (so drafting friends into coming with you is encouraged).
