US 237 The Impacts of Music, Film & Digital Media on Social Movements

This University Seminar will analyze the affect of music, film and digital media on the process of social movements. Social change is the transformation of culture and social organizations over time. Social movements are a type of group action that brings about change in existing cultural and political beliefs, mores and ultimately, laws. This course will focus particular attention on the last half of the 20th century, when the world witnessed unprecedented change in the areas of civil, women’s, and gay rights, as well as an explosion of technology for personal and political expression.
