This course will highlight several famous trials that have stirred the American consciousness. Although it will focus on actual criminal trials that have arisen in the United States, fictional, civil and international cases will be cross-referenced when appropriate. By examining the particular details of each case within its socio-historical context, we will attempt to uncover the universal aspects that make a trial famous, and in so doing disclose the various ways in which a case is reflective of the society in which it emerges.
