MDST 4111 Crime, Media and Contemporary Culture

3 credit hours

Addressed in the course are a range of issues from within a variety of literatures that consider the ways in which the media cover crime. Those literatures are particularly drawn from sociology and the emergent, and increasingly dominant, field of cultural criminology. The focus of the class is to get students to think of “crime” as a constructed and mediated concept and set of narratives that often create problematic public “understandings”.
