Are you interested in new forms of political protest and engagement, from awareness-raising hashtags to demonstrations on the streets? From workers’ rights and smashing the patriarchy, to environmental activism and calls for sustainability? This course positions politics in its sociological contexts, to enable you to explore the emergence of popular movements, feminism and gender politics, political radicalism and reaction, and established forms of political participation and governance.
