  This course explores the problems of freedom by analyzing systems of control, such as the corporation and the penitentiary, and relating them to greater social arrangements, including class, gender, and race. Using contemporary and historical examples, themes include disciplining and managing populations and the mechanics of coercive and consensual controls. The goal of the course is to expose forms of power that embed in social structures and consider their effects on group and individual freedom.
