About this Unit
Dismantling oppressive and complex forms of disadvantage and inequality are social justice and human rights issues demanding collective action. Activism is not solely about disruption and disobedience. This unit focuses on local, national and global social movements, the use of digital technologies and differing forms of activism using theories of social change. We identify and reflect on diverse perspectives, challenging normative constructs between individual and structural explanations of inequality and explore tactics and strategies adopted by activists, from the early 20th century through to contemporary campaigns. Students are enabled to take part in meaningful ways as active change agents through design, planning and participation in a social action campaign, thereby building knowledge and skills in community engagement, relationship building and the strategies and methods involved in bringing about positive social change.
