COMJ 270 - Power, Society, and Social Change

Credits: 4
An interdisciplinary exploration of power, society, and social change. What is society, and how do we study it? What do we mean by power? How is power established and maintained? How does society change? What is our role in making social change? Students wrestle with these questions through engagement with social, cultural, and political economic theory. Students cultivate a critical toolbox for approaching inequalities and injustices, as well as projects for social change. Emphasis is placed on intersectional thinking, that is, on seeing links between different systems of oppression (i.e., class, race, gender, nationality, ability).

Prerequisite: COMJ 160 .

Distribution Requirements: None.
