SOCL 4020 - Global Social Movements

Hours: 4
This course examines contemporary social movements, grassroots resistance and struggles for social justice in global society since the late 20th century. These unique movements comprise distinct cultural, political and social response to an increasingly global civil society. This course explores theories, research, analysis and case studies to understand how such contemporary movements manifest, organize, and mobilize to confront effects of globalizing change such as rising economic disparity, indigenous, cultural and human rights, and environmental degradation. Of special interest is how people cultivate community survival and sustainability and even work to establish alternative forms of community in the face of a globalizing world.
Prerequisites: Junior or Senior standing, or permission of instructor.
