SOCI 274: Social and Economic Justice

Spring 2022 Syllabus

This course covers the theory and practice of social and economic justice, including analyses of racial-gender-sexual-class-national and other forms of justice, the history of influential movements for justice, and strategies of struggles for justice. We will primarily accomplish this by looking at two cases: Greenwich Village in 1913 and India in 1945. We will conclude by examining issues of justice in the contemporary US.
