We return in the last class to the relationship between globalization and social movements. Globalization has been associated with the vast migration of people, particularly from the global South to the global North. Among them are diasporic communities who develop fierce nationalist identifications with their countries of origin. How does this activism express the sense of marginalization they experience in their new homes? What impact does this activism have on the countries they have left?
Please respond to the question above in your posts.
In addition, I would like all of you to be prepared to discuss one other issue for our last class. Identify one question that we addressed this semester that has influenced your views on the challenges and prospects for organizing a successful social movement around a particular issue. I'd like you to discuss an issue that concerns you--peace, LBGTI rights, feminism, immigrant rights, labor, etc--and consider how our discussions of protest--within and outside institutions, employing human rights frames, allying with political parties, employing electronic media, etc--have informed or complicated your views of activism around this issue. You need not post your comments on this second question. Just be prepared to discuss it in class.
