SOCIOL 101

Understanding Aotearoa New Zealand


Description

Using a variety of visual and written texts, the course uses sociological concepts to take a critical look at Aotearoa New Zealand. We begin by exploring New Zealand’s colonial origins and development, before examining the role of ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality in producing social inequalities and social identities. We finish by investigating the role of these differences in a number of contemporary social issues.
