FYSB BC1198 People, Power, and Protest. 3 points.

This class investigates the interplay of collective identity, theories of change, and direct action in social movements. Through the study of primary sources such as letters, poetry, social theater, posters, pamphlets, and oral histories we will examine how personal narratives express identity, the radical imagination, and political strategy. In addition to these works, we will consider scholarship by movement strategists and social scientists to understand how concepts of power shape differences in strategies, tactics, and organizational forms. We will draw our examples from significant U.S. historical movements such as labor and civil rights, as well as from the more recent Occupy, Dreamers, and the Movement for Black Lives.
