[Sjsall] Course offering this fall: What Does Social Justice Look Like to You?

What Does Social Justice Look Like to You?

SJS400A is an incredible academic opportunity to deepen our understanding and analysis of some of the most important social justice issues of our day. This seminar explores history, theory, ethics, and activism on a wide range of diverse topics including:

  • Ongoing colonialism
  • The prison industrial complex / policing
  • Racism(s)
  • Poverty
  • The rights of children and youth
  • The links between Christianity and white / settler supremacy
  • Decriminalizing sex work
  • The role of love and care in social justice
  • Pleasure activism and consent education

Course readings will offer critical analyses of dominant narratives as well as stories of resistance. We will attend to how colonialism (and other relations of domination) narrate themselves into being to better understand how power works. The course is a... forum for students to hone resistant strategies and create new stories to transform the world we have inherited.

The course is scheduled for the fall semester 2022, on Monday and Wednesday, 2:30-3:50.

The prerequisites for the course are SJS 100 and 200, and fourth year standing. However, we are happy to waive the prerequisites for students who already have a fairly good social justice background either through other course work or community activism.
