|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject focuses on the impact of sociocultural change on, and cultural representations of, love, family and sexuality in a variety of cultural contexts and social systems. The subject also explores a range of non-normative arrangements regarding family and sexuality. Projects enable students to analyse degrees of variation regarding the systems and the meanings of love, family and sexuality that occur between norms, representations and actual daily living within and between cultural contexts. Specific sociocultural comparisons should enable students to develop sociological insights and arguments using a grounded theory approach.
