2017 Spring Teach-in Series

What Next? Sociologists Speak on the Future of the World: November 8, 2016 marked a turning point in history. But what is this turning point? How did we come to be where we are? Are we heading for another "great transformation" that will transform the political and economic world in which we live? What does the new political regime mean for different realms of social life? What will it mean for different dimensions of inequality? What will it mean for democracy, political parties and social movements? What will it mean for different countries, for global alliances, for war? Sociology faculty will turn the tools of their discipline on the present and the future that awaits us.

Here in part two, four additional authors add breadth and depth to this inquiry, looking at North Carolina's Moral Mondays, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Occupy The Farm, and Venezuela's participatory budgeting.
