SOCL 3260 Human Trafficking

4 semester hours

Human trafficking–the trade in people and their parts within and across borders–is a problem that has captured the attention of academics, activists, government officials, and the general public over the last 25 years. This course focuses primarily on labor and sex trafficking in local, regional, and global contexts. We review and critically assess diverse sociological and social science scholarship on human trafficking with an emphasis on the structural significance of political, economic, and cultural conditions that contribute to trafficking: gender, racial/ethnic and class dynamics, and the development of anti-trafficking efforts.
