Changing Communities: Tensions and Possibilities for Citizenship and Social Justice

This course examines contemporary theories and practices of community and citizenship in Canada. Rather than assuming a consensual and universal model of collectivity, we explore how notions of togetherness, common interests, active citizenship and rights and responsibilities are constituted, enacted, practiced and challenged in the community, and how social work workers could promote social justice through grassroots organizing, advocacy and community-based research.
