SOC 216: Change and Social Movements in the Sixties

Larry Isaac is the Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of Sociology and editor of the American Sociological Review. In SOC 216, he guides upper level undergraduates toward a greater understanding of social movements in the 1960s. During the teaching visit, Larry’s students will be considering the Nashville Civil Rights movement, which provides a vivid depiction of racial difference under the “Jim Crow” regime of racial segregation, subordination, and exploitation and introduces the dangerous, high-risk activism undertaken by Nashville students that served as a model for the rest of the Southern civil rights movement. In the post-visit discussion, we will discuss how Larry’s combination of discussion, lecture, and documentary film footage provides a model of how to approach teaching issues of difference and power.
