Speculating about social change with your friends is lame, not to mention obnoxious on occasion. Using evidence deliberately to advance a compelling argument about social change is SO much more impressive. That's what we will be doing in this course. We will discuss examples of large-scale transformations along with approaches to research, from the more traditional to the more daring. For example, we will not only review the literature on revolutions; we will also discuss the various ways that one might collect data and make a knowledgeable claim about the causes of revolution. And we won't just watch scholars of social change from the side lines; we're going to mix it up! There are three major requirements for this course: a proposal for an original research project (the midterm), the project itself (the final), and a brief, unpolished presentation and class discussion of your work-in-progress.
