We are happy to announce that we will again be offering our online course Ecology, Democracy, Utopia: An Introduction to Social Ecology as a weekly seminar starting October 17th, 2016.
Stay tuned for the Spring 2017 offering! Meanwhile, the flexible, self-paced version is available anytime – see below.
This 8 week course explores the core themes of Social Ecology using a combination of video lectures, readings, interactive forums, and weekly online discussion sessions with ISE faculty. It explores a broad range of interconnected themes, including:
- What is Social Ecology?
- The Emergence and Dissolution of Hierarchy
- Understanding Nature
- Capitalism, Critique, Alternatives
- Technology, Agriculture, and Society
- Politics and the State: Direct Democracy & Popular Assemblies
- Getting from Here to There: From Protest to Social Transformation
- Reconstructive Vision: Reclaiming Utopia
Please note that enrollment for EDU Flex – the flexible, self-directed version of the same course but without the weekly online seminar – is ongoing and can be started anytime. Registration for EDU Flex costs $50.
We look forward to learning and changing the world together!
