SY2022 - Family, Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Society
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Arts, Society & Education
Family life, gender relations, and sexuality have been significant sites of concern,
activism, and contestation for decades in Australia and internationally. For some,
a greater diversity of family forms, changing relations between women and men, and
an increasing tolerance of diverse sexualities have been signs of socio-cultural enlightenment.
For others, the decline of the family, the erosion of traditional gender roles, and
sexual permissiveness herald a more general unravelling of the social order. This
subject places these differing perspectives in a sociological context and considers
questions about what the changes mean for social justice, social cohesion, and the
future of Australia.
