Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Dr Natalya Lusty


While much of our knowledge of everyday life is taken for granted, often considered ordinary or banal, the field of everyday life studies has provided one of the most important contributions to Cultural Studies. Drawing on critical thinkers including Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau and Raymond Williams as well as feminist approaches to the study of the everyday, this unit will explore some of the defining theories, practices and research methods in this exciting new field.
