Using a variety of films and field trip to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum, this 1-week course introduces students to sociological and human rights conceptions of social justice and their relationship to historical and present-day inequalities.

Sociology - Law

The course will focus on cases related to race, class, and gender.  By investigating social justice primarily in a North American context, we will explore the social structures and organizations that frame the choices people make and possibilities for social justice.  Through short readings and films, engaged discussion, interactive group activities, and engagement with different types of primary sources, we will examine how social justice and human rights can work together to promote social change.
