Social Movements
SOC 246
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 246

This course introduces the exciting world of social movements through exploring interesting recent work and the major competing theories. What conditions prompt people to mobilize for change? Who participates? What tactics work and why? Do social movements matter? All these questions and more will be answered. To do this, we will focus primarily on several important case studies to develop a deeper understanding of the processes involved in social movement activity. Along the way we will be exposed to the key debates within the field and maybe even start picking sides.
