ETHN 289: Social Movements
MW 2:15 - 4:05 pm
Once again, this course will review the theory and research on social movements, with an empirical emphasis on American movements such as the Civil Rights Movement, Women's Movement, and numerous "issue" movements such as peace, environment, neighborhood, sexuality, etc. We will give attention to international movements to develop an understanding of movements in different countries with a focus on structures and cultures. We will talk explictly about the differences between movements around social cleavages such as race, class, and gender.
This class generally operates from the intellectual standpoint of the activist who is concerned about an issue and wants to do something about it. ETHNICITY CATEGORY IS BEING APPLIED FOR.
