POLT 259 - Political Theories of Obedience and Disobedience

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4SS

The themes of obedience and disobedience are woven into the history of political theory, and remain pressing contemporary concerns. This class starts with the long history of debates over dis/obedience. We then ask how 20th century political theorists engaged those debates to justify social movements and everyday forms of resistance alike. Finally, we end with a turn to the present, asking whether and how past treatments of dis/obedience can shine light on contemporary concerns.
