Mini lectures
Mini lectures will be conducted by experts from the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies. They will cover new approaches to a number of significant contemporary concepts and themes of relevance to Society and Culture (e.g. diversity; intersectionality; contemporary masculinities) and are aimed as professional development for teachers as well as providing insights for students. Topics to be confirmed after further consultation with teachers.
Small-group consultations
Opportunities for students to discuss a nominated “big theme” within a small group context, with discussion led by an expert from the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies. These may count as student consultation for HSC purposes. Topics will be circulated in advance to students, who will be asked to nominate in advance (though we can be a bit flexible on the day). Topics will be narrowed down early next year, but indicative topics (tbc) include:
  • Media harm – debates and complexities
  • Body image/Beauty culture
  • Raunch culture
  • Masculinities
  • Climate change
  • Pluralism
  • Feminism in 2020
  • Contemporary masculinities
  • Experience of being a second-generation Asian immigrant
  • Women in sport
  • Meme culture
  • Activism
Individual consultations
These will need to be pre-booked and numbers will be capped. Students with booked one-on-one consultations will need to come with pre-prepared materials, such as an outline and a set of questions (details to be advised).
Research & writing skills mini-lecture/workshop
For those not engaged in one-on-one consultations, our final session will be skills-based. Details to be advised, but it will involve research and/or writing skills relevant to Society and Culture PIP projects.
