CMST 8126 COMMUNICATION AND SOCIAL PROTEST (3 credits)
This class will examine the role played by communication in movements for social change in contemporary society. We will examine social movements which rely on speeches (i.e. women¿s rights movements), social movements which rely on the grassroots political efforts of their members (i.e. the environmental rights movement) and the overall strategies of persuasion utilized in movements which seek social change, including emerging communication technologies.
