Course aim

To extend students' understandings of sociological perspectives on gender and intimacy, including in relation to institutions such as the family and new sexual identities.

Course content

This course extends core knowledge on social divisions and identities by examining key debates and empirical illustrations surrounding femininities and masculinities. Students will look at the ongoing influence of gender in a contemporary Australian context (eg. employment, politics, the family, media) as well as comparatively as it exists in lesser developed nations (eg. sex trafficking and prostitution, migration, religious practice).
