COM 405 - Performance, Protest and Terror


What happens when an individual or group objects to government policies? If political processes are not in place to address the desired change, the dissenters might well resort to symbolic forms of protest. While such symbolic protests are frequently non-violent certain movements do make use of violence. What we label as “terrorism” might be viewed through this lens. This class will examine social protest as a form of performance and rhetoric, employing an interdisciplinary approach (combining communication performance studies, sociology and political science).
Prerequisites: Communication majors with 60 credits or more; OR any COM course plus 90 credits.
