Sociology of Everyday Life - SOCX180

This unit is designed to introduce students to key concepts in sociology through topics and debates in the study of everyday life. As the study of social behaviour and processes, the discipline of sociology has always paid close attention to the theme of 'everyday life'. In this unit students will be introduced to the analysis of everyday situations such as the home, the street, the city, the shopping mall and various sites of leisure and entertainment, as well as the many tools and 'props' that we use to negotiate these everyday activities (eg. clothes, food and furnishings, etc). The central theme will be that our participation in these activities reveals a great deal about ourselves and the social forces that shape our everyday lives.
