CRIME IN CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE

This course aims to shed light on the formation of new cultural sensibilities with regard to certain forms of crime that are produced within the characteristic social, economic, and cultural milieau of late modernity. There will be a discussion on historical and comparative aspects of idiosyncratic elements as well as universals regarding the perception of certain crimes within and out of the western canon. Both literary and normative texts are analysed as entities influenced by culture and as substances that inform culturally coloured modes of thought and action with respect to acts called crimes, actors called criminals and responses called deserved punishments.
