Critical Demography

This paper introduces students to critical demography as an approach that draws on social science theories to understand key demographic phenomena. Interactive seminars will comprise a blend of structured lectures and in-class discussion focussed on weekly readings drawn from Aotearoa NZ and internationally. The first part of the paper focuses on the development of a critical population 'lens'; the second part applies this thinking to the understanding of fertility, family formation and family structure in Aotearoa NZ and other select countries. Particular attention is given to the demography of indigenous and ethnic-racial minorities.
