Street Protest and Social Movements in the Modern Era: Sources (HIH3296)

30 credits

This module focuses on the sources available for the study of street protest and social movements. It concentrates on protest and movements in Great Britain and the United States, but students will also research protest events in other countries and study themes such as leadership, policing or memory. The module deals mainly with unemployed, civil rights, feminist and peace movements, and is interdisciplinary in scope. Students will look at a wide range of sources and methodological approaches and will be given the opportunity to study a protest event of their choice from the modern era.
