Abstract

Crime and deviance only become such when certain behaviours are thus designated. This session will examine the ways in which some behaviours and identities were categorised as criminal or deviant. It will also acknowledge the reciprocity of this process, exploring how some behaviours disrupted social orders. The focus will be upon the complex relationship between (mis)behaviours, and processes of demonization. This second session will focus on how political ideologies categorised and responded to practices such as resistance or revolt, and how they used these categories to articulate and assert power.
