Teaching dates: 11 - 22 January 2016
Uses a number of sociological concepts, such as (post)industrial society, democracy, individualism and modernity, as tools for understanding the changing character of Australian society. These tools are used to interpret new developments in such topical areas as class and work, citizenship and social movements, social identity and community, consumerism and globalisation. In analysing these key thematic areas, there will be an emphasis on the divergent ways in which social groups react to changing social conditions. Core aims of the unit are to teach the skills involved in using sociological concepts to make sense of social trends in Australian society, and in applying social data to assess the accuracy of sociological predictions about the direction of social change.
