For this one-credit course, students will attend four brown-bag lunch meetings with local activists to discuss their work. This is an ideal opportunity to explore the intersection between social theory and political practice, and to begin thinking about internship possibilities. Two other meetings will be scheduled, one before the series begins and the final one after the series concludes. Students will be expected to complete short readings for the introductory and wrap-up meetings and will write a final paper comparing and contrasting the activist approaches adopted by the four speakers or a topic of interest to the student approved by the instructor.
