Through the lenses of power, resistance, and identity, this course provides an introduction to American
social movements from the 1950s to the present. Drawing from history, sociology, and politics, it examines
a range of social movements, including: civil rights and Black Power, second and third wave feminisms,
gay and lesbian liberation and LGBT movements, and Right-wing mobilization. The course also examines
the question of how social activism on both the political Left and Right has changed over the past fifty years.
