Description

This is a writing course that centers around the theme of liberation. What does liberation from oppression and exploitation mean? How can it be achieved, and how might past efforts inform the present? We will explore how radical social movements from around the world, past and present, have envisioned liberation and fought for a world without racism, capitalism, and patriarchy. Topics include: strategies for dismantling oppressive systems, the creation of alternative, non-capitalist ways of living and sharing, the cultivation of solidarity and cooperation across struggles, and issues of co-optation and suppression of radical movements.

This course will not systematically review these histories and topics, but rather use the materials to stimulate our own writing and thinking about liberation. Each week we will write about one aspect of liberation and give each other constructive feedback, so that we can grow as writers and thinkers.
