Sociology of Culture

This course will focus on developing sensitivities to culture, its importance in sociological understanding and analysis and its relevance for the complexities and challenges that face individuals and societies. Course treats culture whether defined as practices, signs, symbols, discourses, languages, forms of knowledge or systems of meaning - at multiple levels of analysis. Students will gain an appreciation of the influence of culture in shaping world-views, life-worlds and identity, the significance of culture in everyday life as well as the importance of culture of more "macro" levels.
