GEND210 Gender, Crime and Justice

Feminist criminological approaches, contemporary debates around gender and justice, and critical examination of traditional and alternative responses.

This paper will engage in a critical exploration of theoretical and policy debates in criminology and in the criminal justice system, with an explicit focus on issues of gender and gendered violence. We will explore critical criminological approaches and feminist perspectives, using these to study a range of issues: sex work, trafficking, prisons, restorative justice and online harassment..

This paper can be taken at both 200 and 300 levels. All students attend the same lecture. The 200-level students have their own tutorial stream and set of assessment tasks.
