Subject outline

To sociologists, the idea of communities is one of the most basic and fundamental concepts. This subject examines communities sociologically from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives so that the insights generated will be relevant to students across a number of applied disciplines. Topics covered include sustainability of rural communities, how technologies (including digital) affect communities, and innovation and development issues in communities today. Teaching will be in a 3 hour workshop format which will include lectures, discussion, short activities and team work. Assessment will be organised around the preparation of one minor and one major essay in a selected area of the sociology of communities.
