Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education


In this course, students will come to understand the complex nature of identity formation in the contemporary era, primarily through an in-depth exploration of the socio-cultural influences on their own identity. Students will be required to use basic auto ethnographic techniques and approaches to explore ways in which they have been and continue to be positioned as raced, classed and gendered individuals and to then represent aspects of those aspects of their identity. This work will require the use of various forms of digital technologies, particularly visually-dominant technologies. NOTE: Minimum enrolment numbers apply to this offering. Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, student may be transferred to the WEB offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
