AAAS 80.05/WGSS 40.02: #BlackLivesMatter
The interdisciplinary, collectively-designed, second iteration of the #BlackLivesMatter course engaged students in a series of workshops related to social justice. Topics included activist media making and documenting social movements, a hands-on organizing session with Boston-based community groups, and an on-campus workshop on formulating public policy. Students in the course were also provided with a budget to pursue research through applied fieldwork.
