SOC 24119 - Australian Society

Description
What does it mean to live within (and outside of) Australian social structures and systems? Is there any such thing as 'Australian society' and, if so, how do social scientists go about describing and analysing it? This unit critically examines the main theoretical perspectives that have been applied to studies of Australian social life. An important objective is to provide students with the conceptual tools required for developing a critical understanding of major characteristics of 'Australian society'. Particular attention is paid to issues relating to institutions like the family, education, the law, social services as well as issues of belonging and community identity. Topics covered include Australian community studies, national identity and migration, gender relations, social inequality and stratification, the rural versus urban divide and the production and consumption of cultural capital. Historical and contemporary analyses of Australian society are complemented by a selection of thought-provoking ethnographic and documentary films.
