A new course at Butler University intends to provide students with “strategies for resistance” against President Trump’s administration.
According to the course’s description, “Trumpism and U.S. Democracy” will teach students how to resist President Trump’s administration.
“Donald J. Trump won the U.S. Presidency despite perpetuating sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism. This course explores why and how this happened, how Trump’s rhetoric is contrary to the foundation of the U.S. democracy, and what his win means for the future,” the description states. “The course will also discuss, and potentially engage in, strategies for resistance.”
The course will be taught by Butler Professor Ann M. Savage, who was named a “distinguished faculty” member by the university in 2016. She was the author of the 2012 paper, “Defying Borders: Transforming Learning through Collaborative Feminist Organizing and Interdisciplinary, Transnational Pedagogy.” She also teaches a Butler course entitled, “Queering Film.”
