The past century has witnessed the most rapid and sweeping social and political changes in human history. These changes have occurred on a global scale and have transformed the way people think about such fundamental concepts as: freedom, equality, and human rights; the roles of gender, race, class, and sexuality in structuring society and its social relationships; and the purpose of human existence itself. This seminar will explore how these perspectives on social and political change have been expressed in different parts of the world through literature, film, art, and music. Students will be required each week to watch films or videos outside of class time. These will be integrated into class discussions along with assigned readings and other materials.

Michael Reisch is a Professor in the School of Social Work, where he teaches courses on the history and philosophy of social welfare, theories and methods of social and political action, community organizing, and contemporary social policy. He has a Ph.D. in Social History and the History of Ideas and has taught and lectured in Europe, Latin America, and Australia.
