BCUP01-002: Society and Culture


Society and Culture is the study of human societies. Topics of analysis include the origins of agriculture and urban civilisation in the Fertile Crescent; modern threats to hunter-gatherer communities; population growth and migration patterns; magical practices and beliefs; religious rites, rituals and beliefs, and their relationships with science; social identity, sexual and social inequalities and political power. The subject will demonstrate how cultural patterns of behaviour found within historical and contemporary, forager societies have their counterparts in technologically advanced contemporary societies, and vice versa.
