SPEE 31 Rhetoric of Social Justice: Public Advocacy and U.S. Social Justice Movements
Contemporary social movements in the U.S. bear strong resemblance to those in the past in that social protests have, and continue to be, definitively rhetorical. This course focuses on theorizing the relationship between rhetoric and social movements from a historical and contemporary perspective. Our focal point will be rights-based campaigns of movements seeking socio-political legitimacy and equality. The course will also explore the pivotal role strategic communication plays in effective advocacy. No prerequisites. Limited enrollment.
