Social Justice: Ethnographic insights (Module)

Module description

Students taking this module will be introduced to the politics of inequalities, through the eyes of marginalised groups. By the end of this module, students will understand the political causes of inequalities, state neglect and repression; as well as how marginalised groups come to mobilise for change (such as through collective organising, transnational activism, violence, and illiberalism). To this end, students will become versed in ethnographic methods: listening to people’s perspectives, understanding their beliefs and desires.
