POST 020 PZ -U.S. Politics: Resistance and Transformation

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This class explores American democracy and politics through the perspective of politically marginalized groups. This is a radical departure from standard American politics courses that tend to emphasize the role of political elites in drafting the US Constitution and shaping the nation’s politics. The traditional approach is understandable considering that most minority groups were barred from participating in politics until the passage of the voting rights act of 1965. Democratic institutions, norms and values are broadened when marginalized groups demand and gain inclusion. This class examines the political contributions of minority groups in shaping and broadening American democracy.

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