GCST2608 - Gender, Communities and Belonging
Semester 1, 2011 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Adam Martin Gall
This unit examines difference and diversity within community. It looks at the operation of power and at how power produces and regulates communities and identities. It questions the assumption that community is based on the unity and similarity of citizens and examines alternatives such as difference and sociality. Specific debates about the regulation of reproduction, the production of sexuality, and the provision of welfare are examined. The unit is divided into 2 sections: Gender, Community and Difference; and Foucault, Power and Governance.
