ETHN 300: Social Movements


(1 Unit)
This course will review and discuss the theory and research on social movements, with an empirical emphasis on American movements such as the Civil Rights Movement, Women’s Movement, and numerous “issue” movements such as peace, environment, neighborhood, sexuality, etc. We will give attention to international movements to develop an understanding of movements in different countries with a focus on structures and cultures. We will talk explicitly about the differences between movements enduring social cleavages such as race, class, gender, and sexuality. This class generally operates from the intellectual standpoint of the activist who is concerned about an issue and wants to do something about it. Quinney.
