Seminar:

SAME AS MCC-UE 1010.

This seminar will offer students the opportunity to explore the currents and traditions of American protest from the founding of the republic in the eighteenth century until the late twentieth century. We will spend the first few weeks looking at the ways in which Americans, from different points on the political spectrum and at different moments in our history, framed objections to the prevailing rules of governance, to the distribution of wealth and power, and to forms of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and gender. Students will then choose topics (topics can focus on a protest movement, a protest leader, or a protest tradition) for further research, and they will spend the remainder of the semester constructing, researching, and writing a term paper. Our last meetings will involve the presentation of student research and papers.
