Social Movements

Social Movements, Theory, and Practice
There are many ways to affect politics, from voting to lobbying to corrupting leaders. But building social movements--from the civil rights movment to the Tea Parties--is one of the most powerful and positive approaches. This course will examine the history and structure of movements from the left, right, and middle, try to figure out how conditions have changed in an internet age, and allow students to develop particular strategies for campaigns that interest them. (This course counts as a policy focus elective for ENVS-EP majors)
