This unit focuses on identity, inclusion, diversity, gender and sexuality in real-world contexts. Students will learn how to critically analyse contemporary issues and problems and identify ways to address them. Case studies discussed in the unit are drawn from a wide range of practical settings, such the creative industries, government and public policy, activism and advocacy, education, and community and health sectors. Applying theoretical resources from feminist, queer, transgender and masculinity studies, this unit builds students’ capacity to translate complex ideas into action. Students will critically engage with writing, activist and archival material, policy documents and cultural texts, including film. The skills learned in this unit will equip students to lead change in their future workplaces, in their creative practice and in society in general.

For students studying the Gender and Sexuality Studies Major, this is one of four compulsory core units (the others are AGS101, AGS102, and AGS200). This subject is also available as an elective for students who are not studying the GSS Major.
