Synopsis

This unit explores from a sociological perspective how identities are developed and what role gender and sexuality play in this process. This unit introduces various contemporary theoretical perspectives on the social construction of identity and on gender and sexuality as historical and social categories. A specific focus is on the application of the theoretical perspectives to understanding and analysing everyday life and experience. The unit examines the significance of understanding the formation of identity in context-sensitive ways and in the intersection of various social categories.
