Democracy and Social Justice

Summer 2021

Taught By: Jeffrey Goldfarb

Section: A

CRN: 2664

Credits: 3

In this seminar, we will explore the complex relationships between democracy and social justice in the shadows of the Covid 19 pandemic. Our deliberations will be guided by explorations of a distinctive form of public sociology as it has been practiced in “The Democracy Seminar,” a special project of the New School for Social Research, formed in 1985 and recently revived in response to the ascendance of new authoritarian threats. The seminar has two distinct, but related, goals: studying the relationships between democracy and social justice, as they are experienced today, and examining and contributing to the public sociology of the Democracy Seminar. We will both draw upon the history and ongoing work of this seminar, and in our discussions and class papers, seek to contribute to its ongoing activities.
