History 349 Special Topics: Crime and Punishment in Europe

Description of the Course: Although crime seems eternal, the definition of criminal activity and understanding of its cause and consequences have changed over time. This course will examine the nature of crime and treatment of criminals in Europe from the late Middle Ages into the twentieth century. By studying explanations of criminal behavior, theories of punishment, and a number of specific criminal cases, we will try to relate crime to larger developments in European society and thought.
