Prerequisites:Any 100 division CRIM course.
Historical review of society's reaction to crime and deviance, relating this history to religious, political, social and philosophical movements and schools of thought. Consideration of the history and evolution of punishment and penal methods and the historical forces influencing the development, implementation, and modification of these methods. Students with credit for CRIM 203 may not take this course for further credit.
This is a case study oriented course based on the nineteenth and twentieth century historical research. We will be introduced to the methodology of “doing history” and some of the unique challenges associated with the historical study of crime and deviance. We will explore local (i.e., British Columbia, Canada) cases of crime and deviance in the context of identifying historical themes and patterns. Specific topics include historical reaction to sex offending, prostitution, alcoholism, and juvenile delinquency. Some of the general themes that will be explored include the evolution of the Canadian criminal justice system, regulating gender and sexuality and policing ethnicity.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
