Course Title: Riots, Disorder and Urban Violence
Value 0.5 unit Teaching Term MT
Assessment Method Essay

This course focuses on urban or collective violence, or what more
colloquially tend to be referred to as “riots”. From Hong Kong
and Santiago to the Gilets Jaunes in Paris and the uprisings in
America after the death of George Floyd, this is a subject of great
contemporary relevance. The course will consider the various
approaches that have been taken to this subject – via history,
psychology and sociology – and, focusing on particular examples,
will examine some of the core issues in the field including:
the causes and consequences of riots; psychological versus
sociological explanations; the role of race/ethnicity; the impact of
traditional and new social media on the nature and organisation
of rioting; the role and changing nature of the policing of urban
disorder; and how riots might be understood both historically
and comparatively.

Assessment for this undergraduate course is via a research-based
essay. Each year students will be asked to focus on a single
aspect – chosen from a range of six or seven – of a selected riot. In
2021/2022 the focus will be on the 2011 England riots.

This course is available to third year students only.
