Culture, Indigeneity and Citizenship: Critical Debates for the Human Services

15 points



The course provides a critical introduction to the historical and current debates of culture, indigeneity and citizenship. The course focuses on debates that move beyond conventional notions of culture, indigeneity and citizenship, and treats these as strategic concepts that are central in the analysis of global/local identities, participation, empowerment, and social justice. Understanding how other communities, populations, groups and individuals organise their lives and participate in the social world enables us to develop theoretically informed tools for providing practical analysis and advice in the shaping/construction of human services agencies and practice.
