Community and Control. Course HP03a: Part Time BA Degree Programme.
Griffith Univ., Brisbane (Australia). School of Humanities.
This course, one of 16 sequential courses comprising phase one of a part-time Bachelor of Arts degree program in Australian Studies, surveys different forms of community, ranging from closely knit, cohesive groups to institutionalized groups, their characteristic forms of social control, and their methods of social organization. The concept of social role is used to understand community and social control. The course is designed for independent study combined with tutorial sessions. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the course and its study objectives. Chapter 2, "Concepts of Community," deals with the variety of communities that exist. Chapter 3, "Social Networks and Community in Australian Suburbia," uses a study of the Adelaide suburbs as an example. Chapter 4, "Asylums: Bureaucratic Control and Moral Order," deals with total institutions, while Chapter 6, "Community and Control: Summary" recaps the course. Materials for three tutorial sessions dealing with kinship networks, Erving Goffman's "Asylums" (1968) and a mock examination are included, as well as lists of required readings, additional readings, a bibliography, and self-assessment questions.
