CM 317 - Social Media for Social Justice

(3.00 cr.)

An interdisciplinary communication seminar that links the use of social media to post-racial social activism through five key areas of engagement: 1) studying the use of communication technology to influence and participate in national conversations about race and racism, equity and social justice; 2) exploring the history of social movements and the ways in which they have helped to shape and influence this country; 3) analyzing the ways in which social media democratizes protest and political, social, and economic engagement; 4) researching the ways in which new communication platforms support the growing populist nature of decentralized protest movements in the United States; and, 5) deconstructing the ways in which social media engagement shapes the way people respond to social movements in real time.
