Description

This mini course explores the Black Lives Matter movement, activism, and social media. We will contextualize the BLM movement as well as interrogate our positionality in the research we do. This course covers a variety of approaches to understand social movements and their actors. I will also provide students with the opportunity to conduct research engaging with social media data and qualitative interviews.
