A survey of protest movements provides an introduction to the study of some current writers, leaders, and movements for social change. Subjects include uses of power and ideology, the media, human rights, sweatshops, free trade and the global economy, and models for change. The work of Noam Chomsky is emphasized. Examples of the independent media and successful organizing projects are examined. Students are challenged to develop critical skills for social analysis and change.
