Week Twelve: Postproduction I—Storytelling Techniques in Ethnographic Video

Week Thirteen: Postproduction II—Outputting your Ethnographic Video

Week Fourteen: Screening Rough Cuts of Ethnographic Video Projects

Week Fifteen: Final Screening of Ethnographic Video Projects

3.3 Student Expectations and Requirements:


Students will work in crews of three to conduct a series of exercises. These exercises are designed to demonstrate skill in the areas of pre-production, production, and post-production within ethnographic video research methodology.


Each crew will keep a notebook with records of their production schedule and work on the ethnographic video project throughout the semester.


In addition to completing the assigned course exercises each crew will work together on their own ethnographic video project outside of the scheduled class sessions to produce a short 5-10 minute ethnographic video as the final project for the class.


This is a very time intensive course that requires students to actively participate in class discussion and contribute to the work of their crew which will be a significant portion of the overall course grade.

Proposal to Create a New Course

(Action Item)

Contact Person: Name: Holli Drummond email: phone: 5-2259

1. Identification of proposed course:

    1. Course prefix (subject area) and number: SOCL 446

    2. Course title: Gender, Crime, and Justice

    3. Abbreviated course title: Gender, Crime, and Justice

    4. Credit hours and contact hours: 3 credit, 3 contact

1.5 Type of course: L

1.6 Prerequisites/corequisites: Consent of instructor

1.7 Course catalog listing: Explores effects of gender on crime and victimization. Emphasis on how gender shapes reactions toward victims, offenders, and professionals working within the criminal justice system.

2. Rationale:

    1. Reason for developing the proposed course: This course is a new addition to our Criminology Minor. Its specific examination of the unique role of a single social characteristic— gender — within the crime process will greatly enhance the Minor, which currently lacks such a dedicated course. Second, given the popularity of the Criminology Minor among students at WKU, this course helps diversify the training and exposure they will receive. For instance, students entering Criminal Justice occupations, such as law enforcement agents, correctional officers, and agents of the court, upon graduation will possess a deeper understanding of the needs of those served by these Criminal Justice agencies. Finally, during certain semesters, this course will be jointly offered— modeled after the national “Inside/Out” program— to WKU students (“outside students”) and Kentucky offenders (“inside students”) at correctional institutions within the state; a one-time offering of the proposed course in Spring 2007 proved incredibly successful.

    2. Projected enrollment in the proposed course: 15

    3. Relationship of the proposed course to courses now offered by the department: Currently three courses in Sociology touch on topics related to gender, crime, and justice. Family Violence (Socl 435) examines Intimate Partner Violence and other types of domestic abuse, yet does not focus more broadly on issues related to the criminal justice system. Penology (Socl 430) explores the policies and philosophies of the adult penal system, yet only superficially explores the relationship between gender and the justice system. Sociology of Gender (Socl 355) focuses on the role of gender in society more broadly, but little (or nothing) on the role of gender within the criminal justice system. The proposed Gender, Crime, and Justice course, with its broader critique of the construction and use of gender throughout the Criminal Justice system, helps to fill the above-mentioned intellectual opening.

    4. Relationship of the proposed course to courses offered in other departments: Given the interdisciplinary nature of the Criminology Minor, a degree of complementarity exists. For instance, Judicial Process (PS 220) & Criminal Justice (PS 328) explore the practical processes and procedures of the American legal & Criminal Justice systems. Similarly, Services to Juvenile Offenders (SWRK 356) focuses on processes and procedures of the American Juvenile Justice system. None of these three courses focuses explicitly on the role of gender in a manner that the proposed Gender, Crime, & Justice (Socl 446) will. Indeed, students interested in the above-mentioned Criminology courses offered in Political Science and Social Work would benefit positively from the proposed Gender, Crime, & Justice course; all four courses are unique, yet supplement each other very well.

    5. Relationship of the proposed course to courses offered in other institutions:

Emory University: Sociology 349, Gender & Crime: Explore important and under-studied intersection between gender/women and crime. Focuses on topics such as gender differences in offending, theoretical explanations for female offending, the social construction of offending, women as victims of crime & violence, the sexualization and criminalization of women's bodies, women's experiences with prison and the criminal justice system, and women working in law enforcement.

University of Illinois at Chicago: CrJ 424, Gender, Crime, & Justice: Examines the role of gender in the criminal legal system. Specific focus on: women as defendants, victims, prisoners, and professionals.

University of Southern Maine: Crm 317, Gender and Crime: Examines the issue of gender and its relation to crime. Specific focus on: historic gender inequality, criminological theory and its neglect/misunderstanding of gender in relation to crime, applications of how inequality affects specific types of criminality—rape, violence in the family, crimes by women, and crimes by men.

3. Discussion of proposed course:

    1. Course objectives: All students will develop and use skills of oral reasoning and debate during the highly interactive class sessions. All students will improve the efficiency and clarity of their written work. Because this class may take place within a state correctional institution, undergraduate students enrolled at WKU will have the opportunity to think through and apply what they have learned in their coursework throughout college. Because this class could include students from the correctional institution, men and women “on the inside” will have an opportunity to place their life experiences in a larger social context, and hopefully recognize their capacity as agents of change, not only in their lives but in the broader communities from which they have come and will likely return.

    2. Content outline: Content topics include: Patterns and prevalence of crime by gender, gendered explanations of crime, gendered treatment of the offender & professional throughout the CJ system, Victimization, the gendered experience of imprisonment, and how justice goals (i.e., punishment, rehabilitation, restoration, etc.) affect male and female offenders.

    3. Student expectations and requirements: Students must prepare for class having read assigned readings so they are in a position to contribute productively to class discussion. Five written papers are required which ask students to identify unique observations/interactions from class, critically analyze topics discussed by integrating reading material, and then reflect on their emotional reaction(s) to the class session. Finally, students will participate in a final project (such as “Designing a model facility for women”) which has both a written and oral component.
