SOCI 400 Sociology of Violence
While dealing with broad conceptualizations of violence, this course will focus on gender and sexual violence in the context of domestic and international disputes. We will examine: the social construction of gender and violence; social policy regarding violence; interpersonal violence: rape in the context of both wartime and peacetime, domestic violence (battering, child abuse, sexual abuse); women's rights as human rights; and the politics of trauma, memory, and denial.

Cross-listed with SOCI 230-02.Permission of Instructor RequiredPart of the Mediterranean Migrations Mosaic. 1 credit course cross-listed in History and Sociology will focus on the development of migratory flows between Morocco and southern Europe in the context of trans-Mediterranean migration history. In addition, the course will place migration from Morocco within the larger historical contacts between Europe and Morocco—including colonialism and its aftermath—and it will consider the impact of larger socioeconomic and political changes on geographic mobility across the Mediterranean. The course will address the interplay of structural socioeconomic and political factors with individual trajectories of migrant men and women, and the impact they have on families and communities.
