Module overview

The module introduces you to key thinkers and their contributions to social and anthropological theory. Different theories are introduced in their historical context highlighting the particular issues their proponents initially sought to grapple with and explain at the time they were writing. We consider the broad conceptual questions these theories address; questions of power, socialisation, knowledge, identity, and the relationship between structure and agency. We highlight the relevance of theory to the world we inhabit today.
