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 divorce scandals in the 19th century to national shame, capital punishment, and wrongful convictions.
