Half Day PM (1:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.)
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Caucus for a New Political Science, this short course seeks to bring together participants from a variety of APSA Organized Sections to discuss the intersection of activism, teaching, and scholarship. The workshop will create a space for students and faculty to discuss how we might engage some of the most critical social justice issues of our time from a multitude of perspectives and a variety of interventions. The discussion will focus on topics including mass incarceration, racial justice movements including Black Lives Matter, union organizing, and environmental justice. The discussion of each topic will center on the provision of examples and idea sharing of how to engage these issues as activists, teachers, and scholars.
**All Short Courses will take place on Wednesday, August 30 at the APSA 2017 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA.**
