Description

Subject Area: Sociology and Anthropology
This course can also be studied in the following specialisation: Women's and Gender Studies



Students will consider some of the most foundational questions about the human condition – questions about cultural difference and similarity, phenomenology, and the social forces that infuse all personal relations. The course has relevance for a diversity of disciplinary practices and its themes engage social justice in its broadest terms; anthropological concerns about “otherness” and related issues in globalization; issues surrounding embodiment; as well as the general question of identity formation. More specifically, this course will explore the relational energies and desires that inform our most intimate sense of self, our collective identities, group memberships and allegiances.
