Resistance Movements: An International Perspective is a new six-session course taught by Saladdin Ahmed that explores the ideologies, political strategies and cultural-geographic context of contemporary global resistance movements, including India’s Maoist movement, the post-nationalist Kurdish liberation movement, Bookchin’s Communalism and libertarian municipalist movements, the Zapatistas, and Pussy Riot. Participants will read  primary and/or secondary sources for each unit, and the instructor will provide contextualizing lecture inputs to initiate conversation.

The fall 2019 course will run on Tuesdays from 4-5:30 PM ET from October 15 through November 19.

The seminar costs $80 to enroll. If these times and dates don’t work for your schedule, all of our courses are also offered in a self-directed format that features the same syllabus and materials without the fixed weekly time commitment ($40). There are no written assignments or grades for the course, all participants will receive a certificate of completion.
