Hours & Credits
The unit is informed by the concepts of governance, discipline and the relationship between power and knowledge to think critically about the circumstances and conditions through which sex and sexuality are criminalised. In Module 2, these concepts are applied to particular 'cases' of sexual deviance in contemporary Australian and, where relevant, international contexts.
At the end of this unit, you should be able to:
1. articulate and explain specific knowledge about sex crime (Discipline Knowledge and Communication and Collaboration)
2. critically examine popular views of sex crime (Professional Ethics)
3. analyse critically the effects of sex crime on society, victims, offenders and government (Critical Thinking and Basic Research Skills), and
4. investigate and analyse the profile and regulation of sex crime in an Australian social and criminal justice context (Problem Solving).
