SOCY 23 Social Movements

Social movements are collective attempts to promote or resist social change, from the way people live their lives, to how governments govern, to how economic systems distribute rewards. This course examines why and when social movements come about, the organizations and strategies they adopt, and the circumstances in which they are most impactful. We explore these issues by researching individual political movements and engaging larger theoretical explanations for their development.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
