1)Today, the U.S. is experiencing yet another national reckoning with race and racism, and we are looking to the past for answers. Many might view our current moment as evidence of the “failure” of the Civil Rights Movement to heal the wounds of racism and bridge the racial divisions in the country. What are the the two most important accomplishments of the Civil Rights Movement, in your view? In addition, identify at least one unfulfilled goal of the Civil Rights Movement. In other words, in what ways did the movement succeed, and in what ways are its goals still unmet?
2)The World War I and 1920s period was a time of tremendous demographic, cultural, and social change. As a result of these transformations, there were several expansions of social freedoms in the 1920s. However, the 1920s also oversaw various restrictions, constrictions, and reactions to expanded social freedoms as well. Identify and explain 2 examples of freedoms expanding in the 1920s. In addition please provide 1 example of how freedom constricted during the 1920s.
crucial to understand society or groups of people who share certain characteristics. Crime and crime control are being seen now as the means assigned by culture. CC has developed in reaction to certain strands of positivist and classical criminology that focused on quantification and “hard” empiricism and crime control. Max Weber’s theories also greatly contribute to our understanding of Antifa. His main focus on society was the understanding of rationalisation, modernity and disenchantment. (Kauffmann, 2009) Weber has identified enchantment and disenchantment in the era of modernity and post modernity. Weber can be linked to CC if crime is viewed as a way to seek thrills (Berger, 2016), and an attempt to rediscover “magic” in a world of cold rationality and “disenchantment”. Technological advances and increasing knowledge have both been a blessing and a curse on modern society. Literature Review Crime can be seen as culture, or culture can be seen as a creator of crime through the lenses of CC. Crime as culture can be observed among subcultures, where crime is a group activity which is caused by the identity of the group. Within criminal subcultures there is a certain set of values, norms, language and appearance that members have to adopt and the crimes that come along with it. (Ferrell and Sanders, 1995) Criminal subcultures can be shaped by gender, class and various other inequalities. Other things we need to take into account are the authorities who label these subcultures as criminal. Media is responsible for building up the image, the constructions in CC and what perceptions the general public has on certain groups. Media also plays a huge role in antagonising groups, by looking back at the 50’s and 60’s we can see how moral panic was caused and social problems were blamed on “evil” groups. The media reported violence committed by Hell’s Angels in America whose equivalents were the mods and the rockers in the UK (O’Malley, 1988). By using biased words such as evil and using biased sources in order to criminalise such groups, the public’s opinion of the rockers were now changed and they associated them with deviancy and criminal activities. CC has admitted that it’s hard to precisely define what is culture (O’Brien and Yar, 2008). In a postmodern world it puts a large emphasis on globalisation, fluidity, and transition. CC can be considered as one of the most extreme forms of ethnography, as it has the most complex relationship to it. Through ethnography academics can study and observe groups of people, which can vary in sizes, and in an era of globalization, it is important to observe how society is drifting. As we know, ethnographical studies were prioritised by the Chicago School of Criminology, whereby researchers discovered a way of studying society through direct observation, which is observing people in their natural setting, without disturbing them. It is interesting that Chicago in the 1940’s received many refugees from Europe during the 2nd World War, (Kivisto, Persons and Pinderhughes, 1988) and because of this Chicago has become ethnically diverse, and so displayed many of the characteristics of a fluid diverse world, as in globalisation (Marks and Grossman, 1991). Ethnography is the best way to observe a group of people and their behaviour, and has been used with animals as well, tryi>GET ANSWER
