4 credits (Fall)
In today’s global network society, the internet permeates our lives, whether it be our jobs, politics, or relationships. Social movements, powerful drivers of social change, are no exception. Digital activism has transformed protest, changing how events, protests, and movements are organized and generating alternative ways to build them. Students will explore sociological perspectives on social movements and the internet and consider the influence of networked communication technologies on the mobilization of social movements globally.
