CJ 545 Race and Social Justice

This course engages students in contemporary issues of race and social justice.  We start with operationalizing key concepts of race, ethnicity, racism and social justice.  We then investigate the historical evolution of race and racism emphasizing a criminological perspective. Finally, we explore today’s most pressing issues surrounding equality, inclusion, civil rights and criminal justice reform. Topics include: eugenics, housing, forensics and medicine, environment, law enforcement and corrections, to name a few.
