The institutional and informal systems of social control will be examined. 3:1:0 Any two of the following prerequisites: This course will focus on the concepts and theories found in the writings of the major contributors to the sociology of deviance. It will begin with a review of how the study of deviance relates to sociology as a the social science most concerned with the context of social class, status, cohesion, conflict, authority, and power in modern society. A basic introduction to significant theoretical positions, including functionalist, interactionist, and Marxist theory, will be combined with an examination of certain types of behaviours defined as deviant and/or criminal. Throughout the course the lectures will review research, policy, and criticism relating to each theoretical position.

Extractions: Lyon, D. Surveillance society: monitoring everyday life 1. This week's lectures develop last weeks theme of how we manage the tension of being an individual within a bureaucratically organised society; that is how we make sense of our experiences of being affected by both restraint and opportunities in modern society. In particular, we will follow through the argument, at he end of last weeks lectures, that there is both a separation between 'private' and 'public' spheres and a fear that the latter is 'colonising' the former. 2. This theme of the persistence of the 'burdensome' effects of the everyday constraints of public reality on the individual self has been a major focus throughout the history of sociology. However, the founders of sociology, Marx, Durkheim and Weber presented different accounts of this situation (alienation, anomie, rationalisation), based on their differing perceptions of how power is socially organised. They also differed on how, or if, this situation could be either remedied, developed or resisted. 3. This theme is elaborated in Cohen and Taylor's thesis in Escape Attempts: much of our commonplace activity is concerned with attempts to protect our sense of 'self' by escaping from the constraints of everyday life. This develops from their earlier research (Psychological Survival) in which they argue that prison is not primarily a (public) place set apart from (private) everyday reality but is rather a location which vividly highlights unacknowledged and taken for granted conditions of everyday reality. In particular, that the strategies used by prisoners to escape their controlled environment have their everyday equivalents and that the system used to control prisoners, bureaucratic routine, are the dominant form of control in free society. This is developed by e.g. Lyon in his evidence on the extensiveness of official surveillance and, crucially, how this enables the creation of virtual identities through which we are recognised by dominant organisations.

Web Links Deviance and Crime The Nature of Deviance In all societies the behavior of some people at times goes beyond that permitted by the norms. Social life is characterized not only by conformity but by deviance, behavior that a considerable number of people view as reprehensible and beyond the limits of tolerance. Social Properties of Deviance. Deviance is not a property inherent in certain forms of behavior; it is a property conferred upon particular behaviors by social definitions. Definitions as to which acts are deviant vary greatly from time to time, place to place, and group to group. We typically find that norms are not so much a point or a line but a zone. Deviant acts also can be redefined, as has happened in recent years in the United States. Most societies can absorb a good deal of deviance without serious consequences, but persistent and widespread deviance can be dysfunctional. But deviance may also be functional by promoting social solidarity, clarifying norms, strengthening group allegiances, and providing a catalyst for change. Social Control and Deviance.

Contact Us Honorary Graduands Announced Report Uncovers Poverty in Ethnic Minorities New research from the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) into poverty among Britain's ethnic minorities was launched at the House of Lords last month. Published by the Child Poverty Action Group, 'Parallel Lives? Poverty Among Ethnic Minorities in Britain by Dr Lucinda Platt brings together all the available evidence about the extent of poverty among different ethnic minority groups and its causes. The launch was hosted by political scientist, Lord Parekh, Chairman of the Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain, who contributed to the foreword of the report, and sponsored by the founder of the Asian Voice newspaper, CB Patel. Parallel Lives? analyses the relevant policy and argues that attention needs to be paid both to those factors that increase the risk of poverty regardless of ethnicity and the increased risks that minority group members experience as a result of their ethnicity. Prof. Ian Craib sadly passed away on 22.12.02. Ian had been a member of academic staff in the Department of Sociology since 1973 and will be sadly missed.

Extractions: Nature and Definition of Crime and Deviance Formal and Informal Rules Different societies and same society at different times develop different interpretations of deviant / non-deviant behaviour. If same behaviour can be shown to be interpreted differently, suggests deviance is a relative concept (that is, relative to the culture or subculture in which behaviour is interpreted). Societal and Situational deviance ( Plummer ): Behaviour considered deviant (illegal?) by society may be acceptable to subcultural groups (e.g. Bank robbery / homosexuality) and vice versa (abortion is legal in UK but unacceptable to some religious subcultures).
Anomie Theory anomie Theory. As you should be aware, in the past, the sociology of education haslooked at examination differences between males and females to illustrate http://www.sociology.org.uk/tece1tp.htm
Extractions: Anomie Theory We have already referred to this theory when we looked at gender socialisation within the family group. Specifically, we referred to it in terms of evidence for the influence of primary socialisation on subject choice and differential educational achievement. However, it is clear that, in terms of secondary socialisation , this type of theory may have some currency in terms of explaining the problems faced by women in our society / educational system. We can, therefore, examine it in a little more depth in this particular section. As you should be aware, in the past, the sociology of education has looked at examination differences between males and females to illustrate various outcomes of the hidden curriculum . Over the past few years, however, both males and females seem to perform equally well (or equally badly) in both GCSE and A-level examinations. This has led to the focus of sociological attention moving away from educational performance to a less apparent manifestation of the hidden curriculum , namely a gendered curriculum (in simple terms, the idea that males and females are encouraged to study different subjects).
