INST 2012 - Intersections of Race, Justice, and Sport-Celebrity Culture in the OJ Simpson Murder Trial

Hours: 3
Using the OJ Simpson murder trial as a sociological case study, this course will examine the intersections of sports culture and celebrity, race, social class, and violence against women, in addition to providing an introduction to the criminal justice system. Students will be exposed to underpinnings of critical race theory and feminist theory, exploring the intersections of these with sports culture. Further, students will have a chance to examine how the criminal justice system is influenced by racism, sexism, and class inequality. This will be achieved through readings, activities, assignments, and discussion, as well as watching the Academy Award-winning documentary, OJ: Made in America.
