INGS4002: Identity, Politics, Globalisation

How do we build a political life in this contemporary moment? In this unit, we examine our individual affinities to objects of global concern by focusing on ideologies, identities, practices and politics that have drawn together and divided people around the world. Selecting from fields of study spanning feminisms, environmentalisms, policy, Indigenous, queer and cultural studies to focus on one or more objects of global interest, this unit addresses, as its core, the diverse formations of politics and identities emergent from these global objects.
