The history of criminology through a study of the theorists who comprise the field's three dominant schools of thought: Classical Criminology, Positivism and Critical Criminology. Students will be introduced to critical deconstructions of each paradigm through a fourth school of thought: Anti-Colonial Criminology. The historical and political contexts of each theory and theorist will be emphasized to highlight the impact criminology has on policy, society and human relations.
