Sociology of Deviance

Students are tasked with applying one or more of the various theoretical perspectives on
deviance (as discussed in class and textbook readings) to a specific social issue regarded by
society as deviant or non-conformist.

The paper will discuss the process by which the behaviour is officially defined as deviant, how
the group, person or person(s) become deviant and how the individual or group responds to the
deviant label. You can use functionalist / positivist theories or critical / interpretive theories.
Please note that this is a SOCIOLOGY course, so you want to avoid doing a psychological
profile of an individual (serial killer or other type of person) or of proposing crime prevention
strategies. You want to analyze a phenomenon (such as sex work, gangs, drug use, physical appearance,
mental illness) through a sociological lens, looking not at the individual, but at the collective (society). This means relating the personal to the sociological (or society). Sociology is concerned with studying social life, social change and social causes and consequences of behaviour. It does not focus on the human mind and the thoughts, emotions and feelings of individual people (which is the purview of psychology).
