Summer Session I: June 3 to July 5, 2013This course will introduce students to a theoretical and practical understanding of social movements, exploring the various aspects of contention that lead to the emergence and evolution of social movements, dynamics and conditions of individual and collective participation in movements, and political and personal consequences of participation. Students will familiarize themselves with key theoretical models and concepts as they explore them through concrete case studies of social movements that operate in a variety of contexts in the United States and abroad. Students will also learn about strategies and frames used by social movement organizations to recruit and work with individual people toward joint goals, and the processes and mechanisms through they interact with other organizations, the government, and the public. Students will learn about traditional social movements that rely on contentious actions in order to gain resources from the state (such as workers' movements or the Civil Rights Movement) and identity-based movements (such as the gay and lesbian movement in the U.S.) that aim to remove stigma associated with certain lifestyles and may challenge authorities other than, or in addition to, the state.
