Crime and Immigration

My class is Scientific Revolution within the Humanities department. Here are some instructions as what i was told to do. Other than the instructions below, you are pretty much free to write within Crime and Immigration.

Overall, you want to think about how science has become important to the way we understand crime and immigration – but in what way? What effect does a scientific analysis of criminals or immigrants have on our treatment of these groups? Do you think scientific studies have linked these topics in our minds(i.e. do we associate some immigrant groups as being natural criminals)? I would start by looking at a few classical readings. Perhaps start with Cesare Lombroso’s work (you can find most on google). Also utilize the Foucalt reading we discussed in class. A JSTOR search would be very useful here as well.

Hope this provides a better understanding and direction for the 10 page research paper.
