Universities are bringing Occupy into the classroom:
- Brown University visiting assistant professor Derek Seidman created a seminar: “The Occupy Movement in Historical Context” after an Occupy teach-in at the University in October attracted about 600 people.
- UC San Diego professor Ivan Evans’ course “Social Movements” is zeroing in on the Occupy movement this semester. “Now we focus on the organization and structure of social movements because of Occupy’s unique model,” Evans says.
- New York University is offering “Cultures and Economies: Why Occupy Wall Street? The History and Politics of Debt and Finance” taught by professor Lisa Duggan.
