Description

The course provides a critical introduction to the historical and current debates of culture, indigeneity and citizenship. The course focuses on debates that move beyond conventional notions of culture, indigeneity and citizenship, and treats these as strategic concepts that are central in the analysis of global/local identities, participation, empowerment, and social justice. Understanding how other communities, populations, groups and individuals organise their lives and participate in the social world enables us to develop theoretically informed tools for providing practical analysis and advice in the shaping/construction of human services agencies and practice.

This course provides a critical introduction to the historical and current debates in culture, indigeneity and citizenship by focusing on how these can beyond conventional notions. Culture, indigeneity and citizenship are understood as strategic concepts central in the analysis of global/local identities, participation, social justice and the negotiation of power. An understanding how communities, populations, groups and individuals organise their lives and participate in the social world enable us to develop theoretically informed tools for providing practical analysis and advice in the shaping/construction of human services agencies and practice.
