This cross-disciplinary class offers a rigorous, project-based introduction to social justice organizing, activism and action-based research. Students will work in small teams to develop and implement collaboratively defined social justice projects. As a class, we will develop a sustained practice of research and inquiry to support our group projects, learning how to shape and pursue self-directed research agendas, and how to turn this research into a sustainable and achievable project that can make a meaningful social and political impact.
This application will be left open until the course has filled. We understand that students will need to register for courses before all applications are considered, so we recommend students fill their schedule to guarantee a full course load for the fall semester. When doing so please note that this course meets on Thursdays, 6:00-8:40pm. You could reserve this time or if accepted, a course can be dropped to allow room. ****The original (April 28) deadline for submission has been extended, applications are currently being accepted****
