CMM 340  Communication Power, Privilege & Social Justice

By the way we communicate, we can either promote or obstruct social justice. This class explores the theory and practice of communication as it relates to the use of power and the maintenance of privilege in US American society and beyond. Students will examine how past injustices have been encoded into our language and understand the historical contexts and current social drivers of racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, classism and ageism. Students will also apply what they learn to become advocates for social change. MU Core category: Social Justice. 4 crs.
