In the first four weeks of this eight week module, students are introduced to a range of critical sociological and criminological theory that seek to explain macro level societal shifts over the last four decades, which have reshaped the world, changed our understanding and representation of marginal groups and our attitudes towards crime and punishment. The second four weeks of the module will focus on the English riots that took place in August 2011 and these events will be used as a case study to illustrate and illuminate such social and criminological changes and shifts, with particular reference to youth, race and social class.
