LOCATION: Rm. 200-013 (Lane History Corner, Lower Level) 

SYLLABUS (preliminary): 

DESCRIPTION: This is a new course focused on developing a collaborative 
history website based on oral and archival history research. The thematic 
focus is the history of student activism at Stanford. How have political 
activities such as demonstrations, assemblies, educational events, and 
nonviolent civil disobedience been organized on campus, and how have they 
affected Stanford? What lessons can be drawn from the past for students 
interested in social change? Students will choose historical periods and/or 
specific social movements for research. The course will feature guest 
appearances by representatives from a range of social movements at Stanford 
the past fifty years, and the building of an online repository and 
community for the collaborative representation and discussion of history. 

NOTE: SYMSYS 255 is the full version (3 to 5 units). SYMSYS 255A consists 
of the lectures only (1 unit). 

The course is being offered with support from the Hoagland Award Fund for 
Innovations in Undergraduate Teaching, as part of the Peace+Justice Studies 
Initiative (PJSI).
