This subject provides an introduction to the sociological study of rural places, and the everyday lives of people who live and work in rural areas. Through specific emphasis on Australia, the subject examines the diverse meanings attached to the rural, the influence of different ideas and policy approaches in shaping the social and economic structure of rural areas, and the challenges and prospects for rural people and places in a globalising world. The subject will be of particular relevance to students who intend to work in non-metropolitan settings.
