ONT 101 PZ -Critical Community Studies

Institution: Pitzer

Description: Utilizes Southern California as a case study to examine how global trends impact local issues. Working in a seminar format, students discuss how power shapes social and environmental problems, network and coalition building, and political movements. The class provides a theoretical and contextual framework for understanding broad-scale public policy failures. Special topics include environmental justice, immigration, homelessness, education, gangs, and the prison system. We are particularly interested in links between exclusion and structural violence, symbolic devises of Othering, the growth of a surveillance society, and movements toward more just urban landscape. Several field experiences, including a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, expand on course themes. 1.5 credits.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.
