Environmental Studies - Social Movements SOSA 3190   Social Movements
The general topic of unstructured group activity encompasses phenomena traditionally classified as collective behaviour incidents, as well as reformist and revolutionary social movements. Although there is considerable overlap, the collective behaviour literature tends to focus on relatively brief and spontaneous activities, such as panics, disasters, and crazes, while work on social movements examines relatively more organized and enduring group activities which still fall outside the realm of normal institutions. This course investigates problems emerging from both areas of concern. Emphasis is given to relevant Canadian materials.
