CRIME, LAW AND CULTURE
Credit points: 15
In this subject, interdisciplinary scholarship and critical theory are used to examine the dynamic and complex relationship that exists between crime, law and culture. We examine a diverse range of offences and their representation in legal, criminological and popular domains. We explore how the manner in which crime is defined, enacted, dealt with and interpreted relates to ever changing cultural, political and economic contexts. We explore the significance of the representation of crime and law to broader issues of social order and power relations and also the usefulness of critical interdisciplinary perspectives for understanding and responding to crime today.
