ANTH 298 - Imagining a Just World through Action

The work of social justice has been afoot for centuries and yet today the idea of a just world for the majority is still elusive. Where do we begin to change our world? Is making change within ourselves a must? What can we do right now to address injustice? What should we not do? And, at any rate, who even gets to decide what social justice is?

You are invited to learn about different approaches to making social justice change. Together we will interrogate contemporary problems of social justice and learn practical techniques for unassuming engagements with one another. We will study global and local efforts for justice in political representation, gender, judicial processes, and knowledge creation. We will also learn through experience in the practical components of social justice practice. This course will welcome you into a community of learners where you will be expected to work on your outlook and the world in concrete ways!
