SOCY 1087 Social Movements (Spring: 3 )
Societies around the world are shaped by a politically diverse array of social movements: the environmentalist movement, the global women's movement, the civil rights movement in the U.S., and the fundamentalist movement to name just a few. This course examines the influence of social movements on policy and culture in the United States and beyond. It provides an introduction to the theoretical literature on social movements and to the specifics of several key movements which we will study more in depth as well as pragmatic discussion about how students can participate in social change through social movements.
