Module overview

This interdisciplinary module is concerned with the interrelationships between society, social change, and social censure. A central theme running the module is that we can only make sense of contemporary social change (and responses to it) today if we have an understanding of the past. Nevertheless, 'history' is presented throughout as contested terrain in which competing interpretations abound, especially in the study of deviance, conflict, crime and criminal justice.
