How the idea of 'reputation' changed between 1800 and 2000, and how public scandal and private shame reinforced particular social values.
By exploring the various ways in which behaviour was policed through the law, public scandal and private shame, students will learn about the shaping of cultural norms. The paper will analyse how reputations were made and broken through a series of case studies examining the intersection between public and private life, from missionary scandals in the early 19th century through to the issue of national shame explored through the 1981 Springbok tour of New Zealand.
