In the last quarter of the 20th century, major shifts in the structure of families have occurred in Australia and other Western countries. A number of trends such as changes to fertility rates, rates of marriage, remarriage and divorce and the growth of single households have had a major impact on the composition of families and the recasting of intimate relationships.
As a consequence there is now a great deal of diversity in people's living arrangements.
The unit comprises four modules which focus upon unheralded changes in the definitions of families, sexuality and caring relationships in the context of the sociological imagination, sociological theories of gender and relationships, sexuality and emotion and the blurring of public/private boundaries in everyday life.
