Course: Crime and State in History

Course description and lecture outline:


This course explores dramatic, historical transformations in the perception and definition of crime and the administration of criminal law. Popular assumptions in common law countries about the evolution of law enforcement, prosecutions and the rights of the accused, the role of counsel, judges and juries in public trials, as well as punishment, are broadly examined. The course approach sets criminal law evolution in an organic, socio-political context—nothing happens in a vacuum—and moves from the arrival of the Normans in England to the early nineteenth-century, traces the adoption of the English criminal law system in Canada [ French /aboriginal Canada, the NWMP & opening of the west ], and thereafter shifts into selected issues in law, crime and society such as the historical treatment of women, war crimes, the current age of ‘terrorism,’ and the health of the rule of law in the 21st century.
