PSIC-2315 Family and Private Life

This CBU course will have the development of the conception of family life in the West (Europe) as its core topic. However, there will also be references to research on family and private life in Colombia and punctual aspects on relationships with a partner and parent-children relationships in Eastern cultures. There will be reflections, from the contributions of history, sociology, psychology and other social sciences, on the economical, ecological and cultural factors that have shaped family life through time. Likewise, the tensions that have characterized the difference between what is private and public will be approached, the continuous struggle to preserve the private life of the political power private, and the unevenness and contradictions entailed within what is private and what directly compromises the relationships among family members: tensions between men and women, between the young and the old, between the nuclear and the extended family.
