TOPIC:  "DISSENT AND ACTIVISM IN AMERICA"

In this course, we will study the recent history, writings, and
representations of dissenting Americans--people who have refused war or
worked for social change in movements for peace and justice.  By analyzing
the writings of activists, popular songs, and representations of protest in
news media and film, we will attempt to trace what "dissent" and "activism"
have signified in the United States.
