POL3620: Social Movements and Political Change: Home

Defining Social Movements

How do we define "social movements"? How have we in the past, and how might we in the future?

Take a look at some of the diverse definitions of (general and specific) social movements from these sources.

Welcome to the Research Guide for POL 362

This Guide is intended to help students in POL 362: Social Movements and Political Change design and carry out successful research papers on contemporary U.S. social movements.

Each page in this Guide covers finding tools for identifying and using sources in the published research, with an emphasis on materials useful for the investigation of contemporary U.S. social movements.

If you have any questions moving forward, please feel free to contact me using the information on the right. I am happy to assist you with any aspect of your project.
