This is a series of talks organised by the NTU Sociological Society. I will be speaking on 28 Jan.
The Social Activism series seeks to analyze social issues from various sociological perspectives and draw links across concepts such as class, gender and globalization. Through the sharing sessions, we hope to raise awareness, understanding and discussion of upcoming social trends and to address misconceptions.
As Singapore becomes more integrated into the global economy, new social trends arise and more people are falling behind. It is hence essential to discuss and understand about such trends as it helps people in making sense of the community that we live in. In addition, there is a need for proper understanding of social issues, since youths will be the future stewards of the country.
