Unit description:

Introduces students to the role of socio-cultural and political value-systems and practices in determining social and economic organisation, institutional arrangements, population change, and inequalities within and between populations. Students gain an appreciation of how populations achieve their ‘fit’ (or misfit) with each other and with their environment. The unit takes a ‘problematising’ approach, in that it critically examines the underlying assumptions involved in understanding these social phenomena.
