The idea of dissent in American society raises a variety of images. Civil rights activists, striking workers, and student radicals of the 1960s are familiar enough symbols of dissent. But might we understand a Pentecostal believer, filled with the spirit of his or her God in critiquing contemporary society, as an example of American dissent? This course explores the varieties of economic, political, and cultural dissent in American between 1880 and 1990, and examines how understanding dissent in its specific historical context illuminates major aspects of American life and culture.
