This program sheds light on crime and deviance from a number of sociological angles to illuminate aspects of their expression, function, and control within society. Topics include the origins and implications of moral panics and how such panics manifest today; the functions of crime and deviance within the social order, with reference to the views of Emile Durkheim; research into the crimes of the powerful and whether such crimes are essentially different from ordinary crimes; an examination of why most crimes historically have been committed by males and whether that imbalance is starting to change; the social control of bars and nightclubs through sociologically sophisticated bouncers; a detailed introduction to hate crime; and situational crime prevention as it relates to controlling spaces where crimes tend to be committed.
