What causes delinquent and criminal behavior among children and adults? Throughout history, numerous theories have emerged that range from body type to the most minute biological aberration. This intensive weekend course is an introduction to criminology that allows students to examine classical and positivist schools of thought; psychological explanations and sociological theories; and biological and biosocial concepts. Students can expect to understand crime phenomena and typologies, social structure and interaction theories of crime causation; and integrated approaches that combine victimization, criminality and justice. Students will participate in seminar and debate extensively.

Novelists, and artists, are often ahead of scholars and historians in identifying and detailing problems and issues. Freud famously said artists were twenty-five years ahead of everyone. In U.S. History, there are abundant examples of novelists confronting human, social, emotional, and economic problems far in advance of politicians and philosophers. This program will study such novels to see how they foreshadowed or illuminated later events—with Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe and The Jungle by Upton Sinclair as shining examples. We will study such novels and place them in historical and cultural context, looking at their impact and consequences. Students may register for first, second, or both sessions and expect credit in Literature and U.S. Social and Intellectual History.
