The definition of Civil disobedience is the refusal to comply with certain laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest. And some in order for it to be “civil” it needs to be nonviolent so it is sometimes equated to peaceful protests or nonviolent resistance. Since Antigone went against her government and the people in power in her society she committed but didn’t harm anyone but bury her brother, she committed civil disobediance.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Class Meetings & Times: in person Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30 – 3:45 PM in Namm 523A
Office Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12 – 1:30 PM. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation via email that you should keep all semester. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email. I suggest you have multiple times in mind, since your schedule may not mesh with mine!
