AME 302 Social Movements

This course aims for an understanding of social movements and "justice" in American cultures since 1900. Despite their great impacts on our lives today, social movements are often left out of traditional curriculum or misunderstood. We also tend to have narrow and contradictory views of justice in the U.S. We will consider theoretical foundations in social movements as well as particular movements, past and present, like the feminist movement, the black power movement, movements for indigenous justice, movements for reproductive and environmental justice, anti-globalization movements, culture jamming movements, and human rights struggles. 3 credit hours. Prerequisite: WST 101 or SOC 101 OR AME 201 or permission of instructor. (Cross listed with SOC 302)
