SCS110 Introduction to Sociology: Society, Culture and Change


Australia is a changing society in a rapidly changing world. The nature and pace of change is both welcomed and resisted by different social groups. Some experience change as enabling and full of opportunities while others experience it as unsettling or even destructive and oppressive. The benefits and disadvantages of social change are not evenly distributed because society is characterised by significant social differences and inequalities of class, gender, ethnicity and power. Changes and inequality affect all the institutions in which we live - education, health-care, the family, work, religion and government. This course introduces you to a sociological understanding of social change and inequality. It questions the specific social, cultural and historical conditions that shape social institutions and values to identify how things might be otherwise and how we might contribute to changing things for the better.
