Description

Disciplinary Elective Course


This course explores social movements in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the People’s Republic of China through key social movement scholarship with these questions: when and why do social movements occur; who joins or supports movements; how are movements organized; how do movements make tactical choices; how do institutions influence movements; and what changes do movements bring about? We examine these questions by focusing primarily on movements for democracy, labor movements, and women’s movements.
