Description:This course will examine the shifting role of social movements in bringing about change in a globalized world, with particular attention to gender, race and class. From the 1960s on so-called 'new social movements', including civil rights, women's, lesbian and gay, anti-colonial and environmental movements, have transformed the social and political landscape of western societies. We will examine these and other global movements in light of current research and analysis. This course may be credited towards Political Science and Social Welfare & Social Development.
