UGA On-Site Faculty CourseV

COMM 4360: Communication Strategies of Social Movements

From #metoo, to Black Lives Matter, teachers’ strikes, it is an exciting time to study the relationship between collective action and social change. In this course we will examine the ways in which rhetorical language shapes, and is shaped by, social movements. Readings will include both scholarly work by rhetorical theorists and critics as well as texts produced by social movement actors. Looking at specific examples, including historical and contemporary movements around feminism, black power, civil rights, labor, environmentalism, as well as more recent global anti-capitalism and anti-fascism activism, we will ask: how do social movements use communication to advocate—and agitate—for change? How have those communication strategies changed with the development of new communication technologies? What do we mean by “radical” speech and how is different from other communication strategies? How has the study of social movement rhetoric forced the field of communication studies to revisit and think differently about key concepts such as advocacy, civility, and persuasion?

TutorialsV

In the remaining eight-week session, classes will be taught by Oxford faculty using the one-on-one Oxford tutorial format where students meet with their tutors in small groups and follow an intensive study course of research and writing. In more popular classes such as 'Shakespeare', students may expect to meet in a small group of 2-3 with the professor, but most tutorials are individualized. The semester curriculum at Oxford is tailored to individual student needs, so that students can make progress toward graduation while studying abroad. This accounts for the multitude of different courses offered. Besides the courses listed here we are able to offer numerous other options drawing on the rich faculty resources of Oxford University. Please contact our office if you are considering participating on a semester program and would like to discuss the possibility of taking a course at Oxford not listed here.
