Sociology Through Literature and Film

Module code: SY2098

This module offers an exploration of key sociological themes and debates via film and literature. Film and literature (fiction, non-fiction and poetry) capture and reflect long-term social process, document social transformation and change and, as such, offer sociology students an alternative data source when exploring the social world. The use of film and literature builds upon a heritage within sociology more widely and at Leicester specifically. Your sociological imagination can be stimulated by film as sociologists can use films as a lens for exploring the complexities of social class, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and to propel our analysis of these inequalities in the past and in contemporary life.
