Assignment Purpose and Requirements
The purpose of this assignment is to enable students demonstrate what they have learnt and achieved in this paper, through writing which critically reflects on their study and experience using all the resources engaged with in the paper.
The assignment also requires that students examine more deeply and analyse a particular theme from our study of culture and society that they think is important to them personally. In developing your writing, make sure you consider the instructions and the key assessment tasks.
Using the theme you have chosen, reflect on all of the following:
1. What this theme means conceptually, in relation to your understanding of the concepts of culture and society.
2. How this theme relates to (or illustrates) issues of social and cultural diversity and change in today’s society.
3. Why this theme is important in relation to your values, beliefs and identity and in relation to important human rights agreements, that you think should be considered and perhaps addressed by today’s society, and how.
4. How you have seen this theme applied in relation to your own academic discipline’s perspective, and how you consider other academic disciplines may deal with this differently.
You must use academic literature to support your reflection. This should include how different scholars from different academic disciplines explain and interpret the concepts. Your discussion and arguments must show diversity of academic perspectives. (Learning outcome 5)
