Course Description: This course provides a general introduction to theories and concepts hinging on various types of social movements, including the ones in the local and global arenas. Social Movements is a course about the processes, dynamics and outcomes of social movement organizations and actors. We will spend the majority of the term looking at issues surrounding movements, how the rise and fall, how they succeed and fail. We will consider who joins and who stays (or drops out) during movement action and inaction, and the role that emotions play in this. What role do outsiders (media and the state included) play in movement actions, success and failures? Finally, we will end the semester by exploring a series of case studies (though we will be looking at these empirical issues throughout).
