Topic:  DISSENT AND ACTIVISM IN AMERICA
This course will study the recent history, writings, and representations of
dissenting Americans-- people who have refused war or demonstrated for
social change in movements for peace or against social injustice.  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.
