Core Concepts Social Deviance and Social Control Paper

  1. Select a form of deviance for your topic in this paper. Keep in mind that social deviance is not necessarily crime and can include characteristics and beliefs or opinions as well as behavior. Also keep in mind that social deviance may be socially desirable, such as great intelligence.

Describe what social norm it breaks and the consequences incurred when the deviance becomes known to official agents of social control as well as to social equals. Then consider the following questions:
    1. Applying Emile Durkheim’s functionalist analysis of social deviance, how is this form of deviance functional and how is it dysfunctional for society as a whole and for particular subcultures involved or affected
    2. How does the essence of social control vary depending upon characteristics of the deviant, of the victim if there is one, of the situation and/or the historical era?
