Full Event Details:

Students will attend two workshops which will cover the following topics...

Housing and social change:
The provision and use of housing is both reflective of and helps to drive/reinforce
social change. This session takes a critical look at the gentrification of homes and
neighbourhoods in an urban and rural context with a focus on processes and outcomes.

Music and society:
Music is everywhere, we all listen to it in some form. So how can sociology contribute to an understanding of music? This session will provide an introduction to some of the key
sociological ideas and perspectives on music, focusing on the social and historical settings in which musical forms are produced and consumed, and the ways in which music is related to our social identities.
