CMM 7003 – 1 credit
Simone Sellstrom

Students will analyze historical and current forms of dissent in American culture. We will examine the nature of dissent, its role within democracy, and our obligation as citizens to engage in cultural criticism through dissent. We will also consider the varying forms dissent takes, how it is responded to, and the rules by which society allows or prohibits it. This course will use case studies to frame the conversation around dissent, power, and our ability to reshape conventional understating of the American identify through rhetorical action. No requisites. Master Course Syllabus
