What is reality and how do we come to perceive reality in everyday life? Why do some realities seem more real than others, and what of seemingly contradictory and multiple realities? This module considers reality as we represent, perceive and experience it through cultural mediators. We investigate realities as situated practices, drawing on and drawing together many things - technologies and objects, people, gestures, meanings and media.
This module is well-suited to students doing interdisciplinary pathways in sociology, philosophy, anthropology and psychology.
