Gender, Crime and Violence - GEND310

A growing body of research from criminology, psychology, sociology, media studies, and gender studies focuses on gender in relation to crime and violence. How are the social constructions of masculinity and femininity, within and across cultures, implicated in the conduct and character of crime and violence? The unit explores this question across a range of topics. Gender is complicated by other dimensions of difference: race and ethnicity, class, sexuality and generation, and these are also considered. The gendered construction of both perpetrators and victims of crime and violence are considered. Special attention is paid to Australian material, but the displacements of modernity and globalisation (through the need to find work or to escape conflict, for example) are also considered.
