Semester: 
Spring
Year: 
2013
Subject Name: 

Critical Social Inquiry

Course Number: 
0223
Institution: 
Hampshire College
This course will explore the intersections of law, medicalization and deviance, and the ways in which social control and regulation operate through and are mediated by them. In this exploration, we will devote particular attention to both the disruption and maintenance of social norms, utilizing the lenses of gender and sexuality, race, class and ability, and the ways in which contemporary politics have played out these debates. Topical issues to be explored may include women's health issues, sexuality, immigration, HIV/AIDS, eugenics, and medical marijuana. Students will be encouraged to engage critically with readings and come prepared to make connections between readings, topics, and current events.
