FYS 101: OPPRESSION & RESISTANCE

FYS 101 OPPRESSION & RESISTANCE

First-Year Seminar (FYS) 101                 Instructor: Graham Cook

Tuesdays & Fridays 10:00 am – 11:20 am

How are forms of oppression constructed, and how do different groups resist oppression through social movements? This seminar will look at oppression through the examples of the Holocaust and Indian Residential Schools. Examples of liberation movements will be viewed from the lens of the Civil Rights movement and the #MeToo movement.

 

WHAT ARE FIRST-YEAR SEMINARS? FYS are unique discussion-oriented and project-based classes designed specifically for students with fewer than 30 credits. These courses are ideal for students to connect to one another and build their academic skills with the support of a passionate faculty member.
