Through the Wire: An Interdisciplinary Analysis of Modern Social Problems
Twenty years ago, HBO produced The Wire. To this day, it is considered a landmark achievement and often cited as the best television show ever created. This class will use a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates The Wire with recent, relevant academic readings to explore a variety of justice-related social issues including: the war on drugs, poverty, access to work, access to education, and police reform.
Note: This course satisfies the Justice Studies WI requirement as well as the capstone requirement for the Justice Studies Dual Major.
