PCE 148 - Nonviolence and Liberation (4 Cr.)

(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)
Although many associate nonviolence with its most well-known examples (e.g., Mahatma Gandhi in India, Martin Luther King in the U.S. south), nonviolence, like human society, is actually in constant evolution. This class looks at the many traditions and emerging ways of creating social change while reducing harm, even against violence. Taking a critical look at social movements both local and global, the class collaboratively examines the pitfalls and possibilities of conflict and confrontation, relationship and agency, harm and healing. Fall and spring semester. Hopper.
