CIS Australia

CIS January in London
Location London, England
Program description The University of Roehampton offers three courses in this program, specifically designed for CIS students in three course areas.
Areas of study include:

London: History, Art and Society: The module will introduce students to various types of historical artefact – architecture and sculpture, painting and archaeological objects – and to various types of historical sources and approaches to them. Students will develop a meaningful awareness of the particular character and challenges of London history through these visual and material sources as well as texts, both factual and fictional – and different approaches to them. The syllabus will include visits to London’s museums and historical locations such as the Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and less well-known sites, off the 'tourist trail'.

Understanding Globalisation: Globalisation is a process crossing social boundaries. It also crosses disciplinary divisions. This module is therefore designed to be an introduction to thinking about the new world order where moral, economic, political, and ecological issues are intertwined with a debate about the future of society. This is now a vogue topic in both academic and public spheres and a crucially important topic in current sociological debates.

Media and Social Change: Class, Race and Ethnicity: This module focuses on the ways in which non-fiction media such as news, documentary, lifestyle journalism and popular factual television articulate and explore contemporary experiences of profound social change. It focuses especially on the changing landscape of social class, race and ethnicity and asks how the media engages with these changes and presents them to its publics. Topics include: narratives of social aspiration and social mobility, class labelling, depictions of the upper and elite classes, rhetoric of race, immigration, home and belonging.
