HISTORY 3402ID: SOCIAL MOVEMENTS SINCE 1945

HISTORY 3402ID: SOCIAL MOVEMENTS SINCE 1945

History 3402 is an interdisciplinary course which examines the history of the modern world over the last 75 years through the lens of the various social movements which have arisen to address issues relating to civil rights, war and imperialism, environmental degradation and preservation, religious and moral concerns, authoritarianism, globalization, and decolonization. The course will examine these movements in a roughly chronological manner, from 1945 to present, but will also necessarily study earlier movements from which the post-WWII iterations of these movements derived strength and inspiration. The course will approach all of the movements using tools derived from sociology, anthropology and psychology. The course will furthermore examine social changes in the period inspired and made possible by scientific discovery and advancements in communication technologies. The course will compare the various strategies of such movements, and discuss the ways in which common strategies of collective action were employed in the pursuit of power and social change.
