NUS Sociology Pre-U Conference 2013 Programme Highlights!

Updated 19 February 2013



For students who want to know more about what will be introduced during this year's conference, the topics of discussion for 23 Feb 2013 are as follows:

1) Sociology of Friendship

Powerful social forces determine who you hang out with and hidden solidarities influence the process of making friends. What happens when friends interact? Are there hierarchies of status and power in friendships? What unwritten rules of behaviour and social rituals govern them and what happens they are violated? What causes tension in the period of maintenance? Why have close friendships ended in some cases? Such questions help us understand why people are excluded from their clique or become part of the coolest group in school. This presentation studies friendships between individuals, friendship groups and intimate relationships by applying sociological theories of interaction and group processes.

2) Sociology of Gender

Contrary to popular belief, gender is not predetermined by biological sex. Why do we think that gender is predetermined by biological sex? If gender is not predetermined, how is it constructed? Why do girls act like girls and boys act like boys? What kind of social forces construct gender? How do social actors construct their own gender identity? Such questions invite us to critically examine gender, which is often taken for granted in everyday life. This presentation approaches gender as a socio-cultural construct that has to be actively constructed and revised by social actors in everyday life. This presentation, therefore, invites the audience to rethink their assumptions of gender.

3) Sociology of Love

Romantic love is truly universal and constitutes one of the most widely shared interpretations of reality. But what exactly is love? In the West, economics and intimacy are generally assumed to occupy separate – even antithetical – domains. For developing countries in Asia, however, affection tends to be expressed through the distribution of material resources across generations and a person’s life cycle. Transnational marriages involving material exchanges have become increasingly common. If so, this prompts us to ponder the most important question of all: what constitutes true love? This presentation will examine romantic love from a sociological perspective, and looks at how romantic love is socially constructed.

Breakout session on Sociology of food

Food is a social phenomenon: what constitutes food and, therefore, what can be eaten; how it is to be prepared, presented, and consumed; with whom you eat and so forth express complex relationships to class, ethnicity and gender. We will uncover the complexity behind an everyday life material that affects and effects multiple social networks, wherein food is both the material and symbol by which class, race/ethnicity, and sex/gender are socially constructed. Food is not just a banal, instrumental act. It encompasses more social-issues that can be explored using different perspectives.



We look forward to seeing all of you in this exciting and enriching day of learning! :)
