Course Description: This course covers the main manifestations and types of organized solidarity, past and present. The major differences, strengths, and weaknesses of each are discussed. In this day and age of a retreating welfare state, this course deals with other contemporary and historical forms of Solidarity. These forms include self-help via mutual micro-insurance (such as those of the guilds, nineteenth century Friendly Societies, and contemporary micro-insurers), micro-credit, sharing, and crowd funding. It also includes philanthropy in its myriad of forms, including local charities, as well as the genesis and enormous subsequent growth of transnational humanitarian organizations. Prerequisites for this course are introduction to modern history or introduction to sociology, and an intermediate-level course in economics, political science, philosophy, anthropology, or history.
