CRIM 275 - Criminal and Deviant Livelihoods

3 hours
This course examines ways of earning a living that may receive social acceptance but are still informal, marginal, and/or illegal. Social processes such as professional monopolization, cultural practices, globalization, and competing views about law as consensus or conflict, and law as morality are explored for their impact on the criminalization of certain income-generating activities. Topics can include panhandling/begging, forms of surrogacy, street vending, busking, financial fraud, sex work/prostitution/human trafficking, and the illegal trade in drugs, arms, animals, and organs.

Prerequisite(s): CRIM 255 , CRIM 265 , or SOC 110 .
