Culture and Society


This subject is designed to facilitate the development of students’ social and cultural literacy to synthesise personal experience and public knowledge at the micro, meso and macro levels of society. The subject examines a range of cultural aspects, such as identity, gender, food, technology, power, authority, etc., to identify the dynamic interaction between culture, society, persons and environment over periods of time. Students are also scaffolded to develop their perceptions of Australian Indigenous societies as well as globalisation, so they can better understand Australian society and the world, to achieve intercultural communication in contemporary society.
