    Culture and Social Movements - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    Culture and Social Movements - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    This lecture looks at social movements and culture in history through three theoretical models of social, political and historical change: Karl Marx’s theory of historical materialism as expressed in the “base-superstructure” model, Antonio Gramsci’s theories of intellectuals and of consent and coercion in the shaping of hegemony, and Black feminism as expressed by Combahee River Collective. Marx’s theory influenced the formation of the movements of the19th century; the labor movement, the women’s suffrage movement and the abolitionist movement. Gramsci’s context of Italian fascism is discussed as is the question of historical fascism as a backlash against the gains made by the social movements that preceded it. Through the Combahee River Collective we come to see how Black feminism represents a revolutionary force not only against the systems of state and economic oppression, but against the narrowly constructed identities that shaped the previous history of social movements.

    The Rise of Political Polarization -- Goldman Stories: Henry Brady

    The Rise of Political Polarization -- Goldman Stories: Henry Brady

    America is more politically polarized now than at almost any other time in our history. Dean Henry E. Brady of UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy is studying that polarization and what, if anything, can be done to reverse it. He explains how changing political priorities, technology, and partisan media have all played a role in bringing us to a point where Republicans and Democrats don't even want their children to marry people from the other party.

    Social Movements and Democracy - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    Social Movements and Democracy - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    This lecture opens with the breaking news of Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis and the super spreader event that broke out in the White House last week. From there we turn to a detailed discussion of social movements, organizing and democracy. Professor Jayaraman discusses the question of power, the elements and goals of organizing, the dynamics of social movements, and the cycles of contention through which social movements grow. She argues that the more people engage in contentious action over a sustained period of time, the more transformative change becomes possible. The discussion concludes with an analysis of how social movements can map power relations and best run campaigns to change public policy.
