Course outline

A cultural studies approach to social life focuses on the way we experience the world, taking account of what we see, what we hear, what we consume and how we communicate. Sociological theory will be explored through investigating different cultural forms including film, advertising, art, social media, sport, and video games.
 

Learning outcomes

This course offers students the opportunity to be exposed to various world music scenes and to perceive them as signs of communication that need to be understood within particular cultural contexts and time. Studying selected theories, methods and perspectives in the study of music and identities, students learn to think and write critically, and verbally express their ideas through participating in classroom and tutorial discussions. By completing course assignments, students are guided to understand the relationships between music, society and human behaviours and reflect themselves as to who they are and how culturally they are constructed.
