CLL 177 - (LT) Organized Crime in Contemporary Culture

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The subcultures of organized crime groups in countries as different as Mexico, Italy, United States, Russia, Japan, and India manifest striking similarities. In this course we will examine the self-consciously romanticized, demonized, and/or pointedly unglamorous images of organized crime in political discourse, literature, and cinema around the world. We will examine the ways in which literary, cinematic, journalistic, and internet texts portray the lives of organized crime workers within the international marketplace, and how they reflect an increasingly interconnected global economy.
