SOCA1010.3: Globalising Inequalities: Ethnicity, Race and Place
  • Duration3 weeks
  • Weekly study3 hours

Build on your understanding of social class & inequality.

This course will build on the understanding of social class and inequalities to address another key area of focus for sociologists: race, ethnicity and global inequalities. We will begin by addressing the process of globalization, focusing on its equity implications. We will then focus on ethnicity and race, unpacking these categories to better understand how they have been socially constructed, and what this means for individuals involved in key global processes such as migration. Finally, we will focus on Indigenous sociology, with attention back to the Australian context.
