Dr. Mark Harris

Mark Harris is a visiting Associate Professor at UBC’s Institute of Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Social Justice. Students in his course, GRSJ 306 – Globalization and Social Justice: Gender, Race, and Sexuality in International Politics, were tasked with writing case studies on important social justice movements in the 20th and 21st centuries.

In this section you will find student created case studies on movements such as Black Lives Matter, the Arab Spring, Standing Rock, and ACT UP.

Assignment Details

In collaboration with UBC’s Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTLT), students in Dr. Harris’ class received approximately two 60-minute lecture/tutorials aimed at teaching students how to use the UBC Wiki. Tutorial blocks were allocated to allow students time to discuss their research with peers and Teaching Assistants as well as to develop their proposals. As with more traditional assignments, students were expected to complete some of the work for this assignment outside of class time.
