SOCY 3392 Contemporary Social Movements (Spring: 3 )
The course will consist of a review of the social movements in the contemporary global wave. Even though these movements have differences in their grievances and context-specific goals, they also have commonalities. The aim of this course will be to examine one social movement each week, situating the social movement in the country's history and the global context, helping students to think about the global system(s) of power and how they are challenged across different contexts. The course will review social movements and digital culture studies literatures since most of these movements were enabled and/or enhanced by digital media.
