More on social constructionism and moral panics

For those of you seeking more information on how the media socially construct crime AND produce moral panics such as those discussed in Chapter 2 of the book, check out this online article. The author gives some good examples and also discussed the theoretical roots of much of the material from our book.


And of course, since everything is on YouTube, check out this video about moral panics related to gangsta rap and police profiling, two issues we'll address later in the class.
