SOC 373 - Collectiv Beh & Socl Movements
Collective Behavior & Social Movements
Prerequisite: LAC student with T1SS or GER student

This course is designed to introduce students to the overlapping fields of Collective Behavior and Social Movements. Collective Behavior is a catch-all term for various types of shared responses to events that are out of the ordinary. Responses may lead to collective violence or the threat of violence. This class examines collective violence episodes including uprisings, riots, rebellion, and terrorism and explores the role of various positions (i.e. activists and authorities). Social Movements are the organized activity to effect or resist social change such as Civil Rights, Immigrant Rights, and Women's Movements. We explore existing scholarly research and theory with the aim of understanding the significance of social movements and collective action for social change and the mechanisms by which they occur.
