Power and Justice

Power may be used to either enhance or corrupt justice in society. This course examines the use of power in society in terms of the conflicts between the individual and the community and those between the need for order and security and the quest for freedom. The course uses analysis of novels, propaganda, children's movies, and current public policy issues as lenses to gain insight.
