Following the success of our two pilot courses, we’re now helping people to offer a wider range of educational experiences:
Our two pilot courses:
- Studying May Day and the General Strike – What is the significance of May Day? What does it mean to call for a general strike in the 21st century? What would a day without the 99% look like? What does it mean to be a worker these days?
- Horizontal Pedagogy Workshop – An ongoing weekly discussion and experiment into new, less hierarchical ways of teaching and learning
Some courses since then:
Occupied Algebra – A weekly course that aims to transform fear of mathematics into mathematical creativity. Mathematics for the 99%!
Radical Economics 101 – How did the financial crisis get going? Who are the 1%? What is the relationship between the banks and the Federal reserve? Why is there so much financial inequality? Why can’t I find a good job? All this and more!
The Comics and Picture-story Symposium – A weekly symposium for artist-writers working in various text-image forms: comics, picture-stories, animation etc.. We critique current work and invent new models for publishing and distribution.
Critical Walking – NYC – Engage the city, your body, and others, by putting yourself in motion on a set of 6 summer discussion-walks to engage the political, ecological, and your embodied urban environment – New York City.
Poetry and Political Feeling – Can experiencing poetry teach us to have more sophisticated feelings about politics? We say yes!
Future course ideas:
- Filosofia con el Pueblo
- Feminism and Occupy
- Market Rights and Financial Bigotry
- Feeling the Revolution
- The Possibility of a Co-operative Society
- Exploring Justice
- Middlemarch and Community Building
As always, if you’re at all interested in any of these educational ideas, get in touch!
