POLI 341 - Comparative Social Movements

Cross-Listed as LATI 341  
Comparative study of social movements in Latin America and other world regions. This research seminar engages several major theories that attempt to explain the origins and development of movements struggling for subsistence rights, labor rights, gender and sexuality rights, social rights, and racial and ethnic rights. The course focuses principally on Latin American movements, but also engages cases from the United States and Europe through an examination of transnational advocacy networks and global activism. Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing or permission of instructor. Alternate years. (4 Credits)
