Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with the critical-interpretative tools to understand and analyze the processes of marginalization and definition of deviance, providing a broad historical and theoretical contextualization and deepening the issue of social control and disciplinary knowledge/powers.

Program

The first part of the course analyzes the relationship between the construction of the social order and the categories of marginality-deviance, through a path that aims to deepen the main modern and contemporary political-social theories and the reflection of these on the theories of deviance and marginality. In the second part, there is an in-depth study relating to punitive power, as well as the birth and development of disciplinary powers and knowledge in the context of modern institutions.
