    Crime in Literature and Film from 1840 to the Present
    Students will use primary and secondary sources to examine and discuss changes in the ways in which the detective, the police, criminals, or prisoners are portrayed in crime literature and film from 1840 to the present. Basically, you will discuss how, say, detectives . . .
    are presented in each of the eras we discuss in class
    describe how they have changed over time, and
    explain why they have changed
     
    To do this, you will rely on your class notes and texts, books on the history of detectives, policing, and corrections that I will put on reserve, and books and journal articles that you will locate through library databases.
     
    Requirements:
    Cite from at least 3 of the reserve books[1]
    Cite from at least 1 book that you locate in the library
    Cite from at least 2 journal articles
