Graduate Course: Topics in Law, Crime, and Deviance: Gender, Mass Violence & Crime in International Law

Sociology 8190: Topics in Law, Crime, and Deviance: Gender, Mass Violence &
Crime in International Law

Spring 2014

This course examines crime and criminal justice as gendered phenomena with a
specific emphasis on gender-based violence during conflict. It explores how notions of different types of masculinity and femininity are embedded in and influence criminal behaviors, the operation of the criminal justice system, and the evolution of international criminal law. Course readings draw on historical and contemporary research and various theoretical perspectives, some of which present very different ways to think about how crime and criminal justice are shaped by gender and sex.
