Format: The assignment should be written with an essay structure (introduction including clear thesis statement, supporting paragraphs using ideas from the course material, conclusion, works cited page). Some questions to consider (dont limit yourself to these alone): Does the boycott exist purely online (ex. as a hashtag) or is it connected to a grassroots organization(s) or social movement(s)? How does digital technology help or hinder the boycotts aims? Is the boycott aimed at advancing social justice or does it have a different motivation? If so, what is the motivation? Boycott selection: In light of this tumultuous year of protest movements, there are many fresh boycotts. Some recent possible boycotts to look at: Nestle, Amazon, Black Lives Matter-related boycotting, Middle Eastern boycott of French Products, boycotts of Chinese products, BDS Israel boycott, boycotts of companies partnering with the NRA, boycotts of anything Trump (Trumps companies, Ivanka Trumps clothing line, etc).
