Re-Imagining Social Movements

Fall 2020

Taught By: Sujatha Jesudason

Section: A

CRN: 8920

Credits: 3

Due to the current rapid pace of change, social movements need to be ever more creative, responsive and innovative in order to be relevant and mobilize for change. This semester will focus on the Environmental Justice movement. In future semesters, this course may address different social movements. Students will learn the history of a movement, research current challenges and opportunities, hear from movement leaders and organizations, and spend time re-imagining and re-designing advocacy and organizing strategies, approaches, frames and campaigns. Working in teams, students will identify specific problems/challenges and then design and prototype innovative new approaches. While focusing on a specific movement, this course is also an opportunity to practice a methodology for innovating social change strategies. Fulfills the NPM/OCM Making a Difference Requirement.

This course counts as an elective course for the Graduate Minor in Impact Entrepreneurship.
