About this Unit
In 2015 this unit replaced by 102179 - Theories of the Social. This unit examines social and practitioner theories that inform and provide critical perspectives upon a range of disciplines and professions. Students will reflect upon the relationships between theory, social practice and professional practice. The unit examines these relationships by deploying such key constructs as: subjectivity, agency and identity; power and resistance; class, economy and consumption; social change; globalisation and nationhood; gender and sexuality; race and colonisation; governmentality and social discipline; mobilities and place. Students will consider the social, political and discursive processes through which theories are made and applied, and how theories limit and create possibilities for research and practice.
