HUMN 1026  Global Structures, Local Cultures  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102345  

Globalisation has created a world of convergence and, at the same time, of division. Nations appear now to be less sovereign and more limited, as their political, economic and cultural systems become enmeshed within, and in some instances subordinate to, a world system. Similarly, certain cultural styles, from the choice of footwear to neo-liberal politics, have become part of a global culture. However, while we as citizens are becoming increasingly international, we as humans are looking for meaning in smaller, local, communities. Globalisation has not, it seems, created an homogenous world culture, but rather, a world in which citizens participate in, and identify with, both global and local cultures. This subject traces the emergence of a global society and culture and, through the use of case studies drawn from throughout the world, examines the links between global structures and local cultures.

Legacy Code: 102347  

In 2021, this unit replaced by 102844 - Society, Culture and Human Diversity. Although people's lives vary significantly depending on ethnographic context, it is also through everyday practices and rituals that the universality of the human condition becomes most obvious. Close studies of how people create a living and make meaning of their everyday experiences in various contexts can thus provide valuable lessons about cultural difference as well as about what it means to be human, and is consequently a core aspect of anthropological inquiry. In this unit students engage with this overarching theme via ethnographic case studies as well as through inquiries into their own everyday lives.

HUMN 2027  Health, Illness and Biomedicine: A Sociological Perspective  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 101610  

The Sociology of Medicine and Health Care starts from the basic premise that illness and health are social as well as biological processes. Traditional areas of the discipline are explored and in each case their applicability to public health is stressed. At the same time, an important goal is to suggest how that field is being redefined and reinvigorated by social and cultural studies of science and technology. The theoretical perspectives and substantive issues raised and developed to study them are critically examined. The provision and organisation of health care are examined with emphasis on the social and political context in which public health is pursued and ill health treated within Australia.

HUMN 2034  Keeping the Past  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 100001  

Legislation requires the preservation of natural, built and movable heritage, but choices about what to keep often produce controversy and reveal starkly varying opinions about what is historic. From the choice of people commemorated in statues to modest buildings on the site of new developments, local communities and central governments are divided about whose past is protected and praised. The historian's investigation of places and objects is an important part of the formal assessment process and may be part of controversial debates. Parramatta has a rich selection of heritage places. How does heritage fit in a modern CBD? Site visits around the city will identify archaeological and architectural heritage to promote discussions, museums will showcase objects from the past, documents preserved in archives will offer insights and historical research techniques will help to answer the questions "What should be kept from the past?" and "Why should it be kept?"

Racism is often thought of as both primordial and pathological. Racist states, such as Apartheid South Africa or Nazi Germany, are usually considered to be exceptions rather than the rule and mainly a thing of the past. This unit examines the ways in which, despite the challenge to racism, race remains a fundamental organising idea in modern western states, one that has a direct affect on our everyday realities. We will examine how race is reproduced through politics, culture, socialisation and economic structures. We will consider the effects this has on individual and societal lived experience in complex post-immigration, postcolonial societies.

HUMN 2058  Urban Life/Urban Culture  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 100291  

Big cities can be frantic, difficult, polluted and often dangerous places in which to live. Yet cities also contain possibilities for social and cultural stimulation not available elsewhere. This unit traces the origins and development of modern cities in all of their complexity. It looks at how industrial cities emerged in Europe and Australia, and at the threat that uncontrolled urban growth posed to social order. We examine the conditions of urban life that promote alienation and anonymity, and how people overcome social fragmentation. There is discussion of modern cities - from those that sprawl, like Sydney, to the relatively compact and dense centres of Europe, the north-eastern United States and Asia. We look at the gendered nature of public space, and how class and ethnic tensions are played out in cities. Students read a range of texts on urban culture and society. These include classic works by writers like Friedrich Engels, George Simmel and Walter Benjamin, to the contemporary work of David Harvey, Richard Sennet and Mike Davis.

HUMN 2062  Youth Cultures and Moral Panics  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 100298  

Young people have long been the focus of social fears. Public figures regularly express concern about the disorder created by unruly youths, or the effects of change on young people. This is the case in relation to popular music, 'youth gangs', new technologies and other areas. This unit will consider how young people became defined as a problem by politicians, policy, the media and others. Resulting 'moral panics' represent social anxieties around economic, social and technological change, producing calls for 'solutions' which often entail repressive laws or policing. Students will examine a range of case studies from Australia and elsewhere.

Legacy Code: 102516  

Historians are detectives, searching for clues and unravelling the puzzles of the past. A walk down your local street holds many clues about the history of a local area - from the name of the street, the architecture of the buildings, the trees planted by the road, even the new building that indicates a recent change. Local studies are used as the foundation for socio-economic studies across many disciplines while an understanding of local history contributes to establishing personal and community identities. In this unit students will learn research skills to uncover the lives of people from the past, re-imagine familiar places and consider events long forgotten that happened in the streets of their suburbs. The final assignment is a chance to turn these discoveries into a new history for their community.

HUMN 3017  Australian Indigenous History from Federation to Reconciliation  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 101872  

This unit aims to explore the history of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians from Federation (1901) to the present. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Australia became a nation without paying much attention to the first Australians. It was widely assumed that they would die out or at least remain an insignificant welfare problem. Instead, these first Australians survived and grew as a minority population; they also increasingly made themselves heard as a people - so successfully that in 2008 the Parliament of Australia felt obliged formally to apologise for their years of mistreatment. This unit highlights two stories: the non-Indigenous transition from complacency to engagement, and the survival and increasing political effectiveness of the descendants of Australia's first peoples.

HUMN 3018  Australian Indigenous History: From first contact to 'dying race'  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 101919  

Until 1788, Australia was peopled by those who we now call Aborigines. Then Europeans arrived and began to spread across the continent, displacing and marginalising the Aborigines. This unit will tell the stories of that transformation, beginning with an account of the ideas and motivations of British authority in the late eighteenth century and concluding at the moment when six British colonies formed a federated nation. Topics to be covered will include: violence, humanitarianism, Christian missions, institutional authority. The course will emphasise and explain regional and temporal differences in the ways that Indigenous and non-Indigenous interacted. Students will study primary sources and learn to understand them in context.

HUMN 3024  Comparative Nationalism  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102003  

Nationalism, an ideology considered by many to have passed its peak, now dominates world politics and permeates political discourse. This phenomenon is crucial to understanding Trump's America First campaign, the problems affecting the EU and secession, the tensions and conflicts that are garbed in a religious rhetorical veil, and which constitute much of the agenda of today's "war on terror." What is nationalism? What is national identity? What are the main forms of its articulation in history and in the present, across geographical borders, class boundaries, gender and generational cleavages? This unit will survey the major theories of nationalism, and examine diverse examples of historical and contemporary nationalisms, predominantly within the European context. This is an upper level unit whose readings draw on a variety of approaches and examples and aim at providing a solid introduction to the scholarly literature.

In little more than half a century Australia was transformed from a convict prison to a parliamentary democracy. The people who made this transformation were the ex-convicts, free settlers and first generation of colonial born children. The survival of data about ordinary people between 1788-1840 makes it possible to investigate families, communities, employment, law and order and the daily experiences of urban and frontier life in these formative years. Using family history resources on the internet and sophisticated digital archives of historical records in Australia and overseas, this unit will challenge assumptions about "who do you think we were?"

The world is being transformed by digital technologies. The same technologies that make life more comfortable for some can unleash violence and destruction for others. Cyber war and cyber terrorism offer new risks for the international community. Bullying, identity theft and bank fraud, on a more local level, are given a new life in the cyber world. Cyber technologies also provide enhanced opportunities for detecting and apprehending criminals, resolving disputes and modernising justice processes. New social spaces are opened up (social media networks, the 'dark web'), and new identities made possible (online grooming profile, avatars). How does the law keep up with the emergence of new crimes and technology-enhanced versions of old ones, and how do the cultural worlds of hackers, crackers and trackers work? The subject examines how justice processes and spaces, as well as criminal networks and strategies, are being reimagined to take advantage of the new technologies.

HUMN 3044  Healing and Culture  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 101716  

This unit takes as its starting point the idea that disease has social and cultural as well as biological origins. What people define as good health and illness, and how they treat the latter are profoundly shaped by cultural frameworks. Healing practices, including biomedicine, are underpinned by cultural understandings and larger configurations of power. We will examine notions of disease causality across cultures and explore the argument that good and ill health are about more than just the body. Popular understandings of illness and its origins, and techniques for responding to and seeking to remedy illness can be a reflection of how different societies imagine their place in the world.

Legacy Code: 101822  

The unit focuses on the question of Muslim presence in the West with reference to the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion. Its aim is to enable students to look at the question of Muslim presence in terms of an action-reaction phenomenon in which different outlooks, ideas, institutions and nodes of information and authenticity interact to create an environment in which identities are developed. These identities then go on to shape the cooperative and conflictual relationships between different subsections of Muslim minorities and the majority non-Muslim Western states and societies. While focusing on the contemporaneity of the question, the unit looks at the study of Muslim presence in the West in a socio-historical context by providing an understanding of how Muslim-Western contacts shaped the nature of their relationship in the past. Then, the unit looks to contrasting the changes before and after 9/11 with reference to a set of ideas, institutions and contexts.

Global Islamism has projected a particularly severe, even militant face of Islam across much of the world. Much less well known is the fact that for much of its history Islam has had a quite different face: it has been mystical and contemplative more than proselytising. The Sufist tradition was formed within the first three centuries of Islamic history; its influence spread far and wide across the Muslim World where "Sufis" played a pivotal role in engaging non-Muslim peoples both within and on the fringes of their world. The unit explores religious pluralism and an alternative narrative in Islam.

HUMN 3069  Queer Culture  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102191  

Queer culture will introduce students to queer theory and provide opportunities to use these theories in the close study of cultural practice and politics. Queer theory counters the idea that people have stable sexes, genders and sexualities. Instead, queer theory argues that the experience of those that are homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and intersex highlight the frequent mis-matches in what are taken for granted to be 'normal' experiences of identity. Queer theory demonstrates the impossibility of a natural or normal sexuality, but it also demonstrates the problem with the terms 'man' and 'woman', 'male' and 'female', 'normal' and 'abnormal'. In Queer culture students will learn about queer theories and have the opportunity to apply these theories to an in-depth and personally engaging study of queer politics and activism; queer media, film and performance; and queer sex, selfhood, and identity trans/formations.

Legacy Code: 102349  

Examining the social construction of gender has been central to anthropological inquiries since the 1930s. Early ethnographic studies were instrumental in debunking gender essentialism and challenging the hegemony of western constructs about 'masculinity' and 'femininity'. Since the 1930s, critical Anthropological theories and ethnographies have through cross-cultural comparison, demonstrated the great variation in expressions of individual sexuality/ies, the dynamics and confines behind the construction of gender roles and the cultural meaning and expression of gender categories across the globe. This unit will address the ongoing exploration of and challenges to the sex (biology) vs. gender (culture) dichotomy and contemporary cultural, social and political transformation (manipulation) of these categories.

HUMN 3098  Genders and sexualities: beyond the binary  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102733  

This unit encourages students to critically reflect on how their own identities and experiences of genders and sexualities are shaped by broader social practices that define what is natural and what is normal. The unit focuses on two substantive topics: the body and institutions. Bodies are usually understood through biological explanations of gender and sexuality. However, this unit will consider how the body is shaped by the social discourses and practices through which genders and sexualities are produced. The unit investigates how age, race, class and ability are coded differently in terms of gender and sexuality. Institutions - families, schools, workplaces and religions - will be studied as sites where genders and sexualities may be observed but also produced and negotiated.

HUMN 3110  Gender and Sexualities Across Cultures  (10 Credit Points)  

Examining the social construction of gender has been central to social science inquiries - including anthropology and sociology - since the 1930s. Early ethnographic studies were instrumental in debunking gender essentialism and challenging the hegemony of western constructs about 'masculinity' and 'femininity'. Since the 1930s, critical social theories and ethnographies have through cross-cultural comparison, demonstrated the great variation in expressions of individual sexuality/ies, the dynamics and confines behind the construction of gender roles and the cultural meaning and expression of gender categories across the globe. This unit will address the ongoing exploration of and challenges to the sex (biology) vs. gender (culture) dichotomy and contemporary cultural, social and political transformation (manipulation) of these categories.

Cyber crime is typically understood as use of information and communication technologies to assist in the commission of other crimes, actions that target computer networks or software, or new offences that could only exist with the technology. Cyber justice meanwhile emphasises the use of information and communication technologies to improve access to justice and the efficiency of justice procedures, not just to deal with cyber crime. How does the law keep up with the emergence of new crimes and technology-enhanced versions of old ones, and how do forensic investigators and analysts contribute to this process? The subject examines how justice processes and spaces, as well as criminal networks and strategies, are being reimagined to take advantage of the new technologies.

HUMN 7017  Ecopedagogies  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102157  

In simplest terms, ecopedagogies is teaching and learning in partnership with Nature. This interdisciplinary unit examines place-based theory and outdoor-experiential education. Research has repeatedly shown that outdoor experiential learning promotes health, well-being, cognitive advancement, growth and development for children, youth and adults. Correspondingly, the importance of ecopedagogies in this historical era cannot be underestimated. The precariousness of human/nature interrelationships compels us to explore new ways of learning and knowing and ecopedagogies provides new ways of connecting with the natural world. Further insight is gained through engaging with First Peoples' knowledge systems through the conceptualisation of 'country' and relational frameworks.

HUMN 7018  Ecopsychology and Cultural Change  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 101652  

From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. Ecopsychology is concerned with the relationship between human consciousness, human actions and environmental issues. It seeks to understand the sources, both phenomenological and socio-cultural, of the disjuncture between nature and psyche and to develop possibilities for personal and cultural re-connection and healing. Through applying experiential methods, critical inquiry and engagement with ecopsychological writings, students develop their awareness of "self", "nature", "culture" and explore the dynamics between them. The unit incorporates perspectives on ecological identity, ecospirituality and sense of place as ways of re-imagining the human-nature relationship and effecting ecologically-oriented change.

HUMN 7022  Global Criminology and Human Rights  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102200  

Global criminology is concerned with the process of respecting and fostering ideals of justice, the rule of law and human rights in an expanding range of transnational and domestic locations. These include stable, divided and post-conflict societies that are variously dealing with issues of discrimination, exploitation, insecurity and violence via international agreements, judicial and political means. The global development of justice initiatives has challenged the traditional criminological concern with individual offenders prosecuted by the sovereign nation state acting on behalf of a sole victim. In this unit students will gain a critical understanding of theories and concepts of global criminology, detail of the key aspects and uses of international criminal law, and the potential of alternative modes of attaining social justice. Case studies from around the globe will be analysed along with an emphasis placed on assessing the significance of issues, rights and justice reforms in developing regions.

HUMN 7033  Religion and Law in Contemporary Public Discourse  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102202  

Debates over the role of religion as well as religious law in the public sphere have been ongoing themes in recent decades in many countries. Religion and law are two important yet rival sources of normative reasoning of public order in which they are constitutive, regulative and coercive forces. The unit introduces students to various understanding of the interrelations between religion and law in the societal and individual domains of the public sphere; and reflects on the contentious nature of the relationships given sensitive issues such as religious education, equal marriage, abortion, human rights. In the first part of the unit, students study the relationship between law and religion in various faiths such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. The second part examines how different religious traditions interact and intersect with different legal traditions (common and civil law system) in a range of countries (for example Australia, UK, Israel, Indonesia, India, Iran).

HUMN 7037  Researcher Engagement and Impact  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 800209  

Maximising impact requires strategy. In addition to an extensive relationship-building with external parties as well as a general commitment to knowledge translation, achieving impact also means being strategic with research design from the earliest stages of project planning. Who is your research targeted to? What are the broader social aims of your research? Which individuals and organisations might have a stake in the outcomes of your research? What are the relevant disciplinary, policy, economic, industry, and social contexts for your research? What barriers or opportunities exist within these contexts? What social media and other communication platforms are available for you to transfer knowledge? What types of public communication should you engage in, and at what stages of your research? This unit will explore how to design research projects with such questions in mind, by combining collaborative workshops with assessments tailored specifically to your own circumstances. Whatever stage your research is at, you will have the opportunity to produce output that will feed into your broader impact or engagement objectives.

HUMN 7040  Social Ecology  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102152  

This unit focuses on learning in the context of social-ecological understanding. It asserts that ecological sustainability is a consequence of the understanding and enactment of social-ecological relationships. In this regard 'social ecology' describes a field of understanding while 'sustainability' describes praxis in a social-ecological context. Both experience and the understanding of experience - learning- are subject matter. This study is undertaken through reference to ecological systems of understandings in the context of challenges to that understanding. It is grounded in reference to learning, change, creativity, culture, politics and the physical environment. The unit introduces key theorists and invites students to examine their personal relationship to social-ecological learning.

HUMN 7047  Transnational Crime  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102198  

In traditional criminology crimes have been understood as acts that breach the criminal code of a given nation state. By contrast, transnational crimes are defined as violations of law that embrace more than one nation in their planning, operation or impact. These crimes often have a much broader (though often veiled) relation to serious individual and collective social harm and can be especially difficult to prevent or investigate and prosecute. Students will be expected to understand the global and regional developments that foster transnational crime, its range and security impacts, and international agreements and conventions as well the new forms of policing developed to counter it.

HUMN 7048  Understanding Race  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102601  

What is race? What is racism? How are they related? Why do they continue to shape social, political and economic relations well after the biological concept of race was disproven? What are the links between race and colonialism and in Australia particularly, the invasion and settlement of Aboriginal land? How is race related to property? How do ideas of race become embedded in state institutions and why do they continue to shape disadvantage and inequality? Though race develops differently in different contexts, it is best thought about through relational readings that draw out both the differences but also the similarities between places and times. This unit will draw on race critical and decolonial texts to focus on race as a modern idea that is shaped in the contexts of colonialism, slavery, and persists in post-immigration multicultural societies.

HUMN 7049  Violence, Culture and Criminal Justice  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102199  

In recent decades, a new wave of racial, ethnic and religious violence and terrorism has been linked to rapid patterns of globalisation and tensions over group and national identities. Specific knowledge about violence and considerations about its real extent, causes and cultural meanings remain uncertain. Yet there is evidence of a recent general decline in violence with a significant role for legal and quasi-legal bodies for acknowledging injury, punishing previously 'deniable' violence and promoting reconciliation. Seminar topics in this course will include the global patterns and forms of violence; individual versus societal and historical explanations; biology, evolution and culture; gender, race and inequality; hatred, genocide, collective identity and psychoanalysis; the role of states and law in countering and condoning interpersonal and collective violence; debates about victimhood and the cultural symbols of violence and its memorialisation.
