Current Topics in Criminology
COD Workload Description
72425-02 30 This course will foster a reflection on the limits of Criminology, including Critical Criminology, in view of the topics discussed.

In this sense, it is intended to seek an understanding of the social dynamics of their rise and decline, as cultural products, which results in a constant creation and shift of paradigms. Hence, new methodologies and forms of analysis will be analyzed and discussed, as they are supported in the interface Criminology-Sociology, as well as cultural studies, media and urban studies, philosophy, post-modern critical theory, human and cultural geography, anthropology, social movements study, and approaches of active research.
