Crime, harm and the state free course icon Level

Society, Politics & Law 

Crime, harm and the state

The central question you'll explore in this module is why some events which cause harm, of various kinds, are formally labelled and treated as crimes when others are not, and this can vary by region and over time. You'll focus on constructions of 'harm' or 'social harm', not least as these are intimately linked to the state, as the key source of definitions of crime through law, and a key concept in understanding the process of criminalisation and definitions of crime, harm and justice. You'll also critically consider the role and function of criminological theory and its proximity to state power, allowing you to develop your own criminological imagination and identity.

Methodism in Wales, 1730–1850 free course icon Level

History & The Arts 

Methodism in Wales, 1730–1850

In this free course, Methodism in Wales, 1730–1850, you will learn about a neglected strand of Welsh history and identity. By the mid-nineteenth century, Calvinistic Methodism had become the most popular religious denomination in Wales and a mainstay of Welsh national identity. Where did this new form of religion come from? Why did it become so popular? And how did it become so intertwined with ideas about Welshness? These are the questions this course will consider, and at the same time it will introduce you to some fantastic free online resources for learning about the history of Wales more broadly.

The social nature of being human free course icon Level

Society, Politics & Law 

The social nature of being human

This free course, The social nature of being human, will introduce you to several of the social aspects of humanity and being human. Some of these are obvious, as, during the course, you will think about crowd behaviour and consider traditional dilemmas of being in crowds. Others will be less obvious, such as the seemingly intimate and private act of charitable giving to the homeless. Yet the focus of the course will at all points be how the 'social' permeates our day-to-day conduct, and often in ways we are not necessarily aware of it. We are in the presence of others, not just when they clearly chant with us or step on our feet, but, more controversially, even when during our most private dreams, fantasies and other ruminations.
