SCS730 Theories for Practice: Power, Oppression and the "Good Society"

We live in a complex, power-divided and divisive world. Social theory seeks to expose and explain these power relations with a view to promoting practices that could help bring about greater social justice, human freedom and a sustainable world. This course introduces you to a range of critical thinkers and theories that will assist you in reflecting upon these challenging issues in the changing context of social work and development practice. It charts both ‘classical’ attempts to formulate universal theories, and more recent forms of situated, partial and reflexive theories.
