The Politics of Social Movements - Limit 25 Members Register View Cart

This course will explore the nature of social movements in the U.S. and abroad, looking first at social and political theories that account for social movements, then at the various stages of movements, and finally consider a number of concrete social movements, as well as considering failed social movements. We will likely include the various waves of Christian Right, feminist, and civil rights movements in the U.S., including the most recent Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. We may also consider the anti-war movement, and the Tea Party movement, depending on interest. We will also consider failed social movements, such as that for gun control.
