LALS 382 - Social Movements at the Borderlands

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as INTL 382  and SOCI 382 ) This course explores border politics through the lens of social movements. We begin with an overview of the major paradigms in the study of collective behavior and social movements. This theoretical foundation helps us understand how border communities and migrants mobilize claims for social change across regional contexts. A focus on borderlands allows us to analyze the ways in which spaces shape claims, social mobilization, and identities. We also answer important practical questions about the pursuit of social justice and human rights, and through these practical questions, we address theoretical questions about citizenship and belonging in an era of globalization and increasing inequality. Alejandro Marquez.

One 2-hour period.
