Course Catalog Description:
Correctional strategies such as prison, probation, and parole. Theories/structures of diversion, probation, parole, and other community corrections programs. U.S. penal policies/practices compared with those in other countries.
Class Description:
This course is an in-depth sociological analysis of U.S. penal institutions and their role in society. We examine the origins, functions, and effects of the U.S. system of mass incarceration and its role in reshaping contemporary patterns of inequality and racial stratification. Other highlighted topics include women's imprisonment, community corrections, prison guards' unions, felony disenfranchisement, and the death penalty. The class will focus particular attention on Michelle Alexander's "New Jim Crow" book, which argues that the carceral system functions as a modern-day Jim Crow system of racial control. This book has received a record amount of popular attention and is the center of important policy debates today. We will also watch a series of documentaries, or "video ethnographies," to explore the lived experiences of people in the criminal justice system
