We hope you’ve enjoyed the first week of the course!

Hopefully you’ve had the chance to develop a sense of some of the definitional issues around the idea of crime.

There are all kinds of contexts in which you might find it interesting to reflect on what you’ve been learning. So, when you are watching or reading the news, reading your detective novel, watching a police drama, please do bear the course in mind!

If you’ve got any reflections on the week, or if you have the chance to apply your learning in ways suggested by the previous paragraph, and you’d like to share your thoughts, please do so!

See you in week 2!
