#Metoo #Kony2012 #Fake News #BLM, #Loveislove, #IIcantbreathe, and etc are just a few examples of modern social movements.
This class will examine the processes of collective action in Social Movements. This course will investigate social movements from collective action from domestic and international perspectives. The course will focus on the hitherto success and failure of social movements: waves of feminism, the civil rights movement, and the LGBTQ+ movement. Students will learn the many methods of successful social movements such as peaceful protesting, sit-in’s, acts of civil disobedience, and riots. The transdisciplinary academic boundaries of Global Social Movements combine and draw from sociology, political science, and anthropology. From the use of case studies, students will comparatively be able to understand issues in the power of the social problems (not to be limited) such as police brutality that has resulted in collective action that resulted in the Egyptian Revolution from the 2020 unrest around the globe.
