Difficult Dialogues: Change Theories, Identity Development, and Leadership|
This course uses dialectical theories to investigate the connections among social-change theories, frameworks for understanding the construction and development of societal organizations (e.g., hierarchal institution and collaborative networks), principles of participatory leadership and empowerment in organizational change strategies, and concepts of social-identity group development. The intersection of these research fields provides a theoretical foundation to understand dialectical and participatory democracy strategies for advancing social justice within societal institutions populated with diverse individuals. As a learning laboratory for social-change theory, the campus context will be used to explore and/or test theories and hypotheses for advancing social justice within a societal institution.
