  1. Does a Sampling Frame exist for your proposed study population? If so, where can it be found? If so, can you acquire it? Explain your response.
  2. What type of sampling technique (e.g. stratified sampling) is most appropriate for your proposed study? Defend your response and keep in mind any/all potentially limiting factors (time, access to participants, funding, etc).

Analysis of the Strain Theory

You have learned about the historical origins of orthodox and modern criminology (e.g., Classical, Positivist, Durkheimian, Strain Theory). You have also studied critiques put forth by critical criminologists (e.g., Bernie & Messerschmidt) and those who evaluate criminology from the perspective of post-colonialism (e.g., Agozino). Drawing on this material, and your own analysis and interpretation of it, please respond to the following questions in one essay: a) Which of the theoretical perspectives that we have learnt about so far, most resonate with you and why? (none may fully resonate, that’s ok, you have the opportunity to engage with that in part b)) b) What are the key strengths and limitati​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​ons of your chosen perspective for helping us understand why crime occurs and what its consequences and implications can be (for society at large, and individuals/groups)? To argue your position, please pick a relevant “real-world” case that will help to support the points you make. For instance, if you are interested in critiquing classical criminological theory for neglecting to consider how inequality and race operate in the criminal-justice system, you might pick the case of the “central park five”: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/30/arts/television/when-they-see-us.html This is simply an example – and one that may not be relevant to you. Some additional examples of relevant “cases” are below: The criminalization of Poverty (through a critique of the American Dream): https://news.un.org/en/story/2017/12/639652-american-dream-quickly-becoming- illusion-says-un-human-rights-expert ???????

” Agnolo Bronzino’s Eleanor of Toledo from 1544

Identify artist, title (in italics!), date of work and medium.
Describe the content and/or subject matter (describe what you see when you look at the work).
( For example: ” Agnolo Bronzino’s Eleanor of Toledo from 1544 is an oil on wood portrait of a mother seated with her young son standing on her right side. The mother is wearing an elaborate dress with black and gold details. The child has blond hair and is wearing a dark blue jacket and is smiling slightly.)
Identify a style or movement the work is associated with; use your Preble’s textbook to place the work in its style category. Explain how it fits into this particular art movement.
( For example: “Eleanor of Toledo was completed during the beginning of the Mannerist art movement, which took place in Italy beginning in the 1520s. This painting is characteristically Mannerist because the figures in the painting have exaggerated and elongated proportions-especially fingers-and are painted with rich colors used to imply texture.”)
Identify 2-3 formal elements (define each formal element using your textbook; identify each formal element in the artwork).
