Take Home

Answer the following question in no more than 300 words (aim for 250-300 words). Make sure to indicate word count. See syllabus for submission standards. Post an electronic copy to Canvas by the date and time of the exam (Midnight, Wednesday October 12). You do NOT need to submit a paper copy. The take home exam will be graded on the following criteria:  The ability to correctly define concepts and theories, and use specific examples to demonstrate them. Responses should make it clear that the author understands the meaning of the concepts and terms and identify relevant examples. Weaker essays will more vaguely define concepts, will draw from more limited sections of the texts, will mismatch between the concept and the example, and/or will incorrectly or vaguely use concepts and terms. You are expressly barred from using direct quotations as part of your essay; using a direct quotation will result in an automatic deduction of 2 points per direct quotation. See syllabus for how to cite from assigned readings. If you use any source other than the readings assigned for the course, make sure to cite your source. That said, I STRONGLY DISCOURAGE you from using sources other than the assigned readings—there is not really enough “space” in each question to include additional research while answering carefully from the assigned readings.  Clarity, grammar, and basic mechanics will be considered in the final grade, but are considerably less important than the content specified above. You are free to orally discuss the content of your responses with classmates and others, but remember to write and edit alone. Answer ALL of the following: (10 points each) 1. What is structural strain theory and what evidence is there to support this theory in Vargas? 2. What is differential association theory and what evidence is there to support this theory in Goffman? 3. What is social control theory and what evidence is there to support this theory in Vargas? 4. What is broken windows theory and what evidence is there to support this theory in Goffman? 5. According to Goffman, how do the police benefit from the system of mass incarceration? How are other groups systematically disadvantaged by the same system? 6. According to Goffman, how does an “underground” informal economy develop in neighborhoods most affected by mass incarceration, and how does this increase the likelihood that people in the neighborhood will be swept up by mass incarceration? 7. How and why does Vargas suggest that political boundaries (such as Chicago’s wards) are an important part of understanding where violence takes place? 8. According to Vargas, what is the code of silence and why do Little Village residents follow it, rather than work with the police to reduce violence in their neighborhoods? 9. What is spatial mismatch, and what are the implications of spatial mismatch for urban youth deviance? Why is there spatial mismatch in New Jersey? 10. Drawing from any of the resources used in the class up to this point, what community characteristics are associated with higher levels of urban youth deviance? What characteristics are associated with lower levels of urban youth deviance? Do these patterns hold true in New Jersey?
