SOC 370 Sociology of (Non)Violence

This course examines the social phenomenon of human violence. We first consider classical and contemporary sociological theories on violence and violent conflicts and the main sociological definitions of violence used over the last century. We then turn to empirical studies that explore the social processes and societal structures that give rise to the various forms of violence-intrapersonal interpersonal familial collective and political-and nonviolent movements presently observed throughout the world.
