This course is for students who wish to learn about and study the effectiveness of a wide range of activist practices and techniques. They should be largely self-directed and self-motivated, as there are no sophisticated research or action tools thus far available for much of the course material. Creativity will play a large role, especially when examining creative resistance actions that took place with minimal or no documentation, which is the case for most of them. Course goals are to build useful databases and acquaint students with the depth and breadth of activist practice.
