Week 7, March 8, 1:00 to 2:30pm: Para-Sites: Alter-/Under Academies

Ken Thompson / United Methodist Board of Global Ministries, African American Girls in a Freedom School, 1964; via Washington University, fair use

Today we’ll examine the history, present, and future of experimental colleges, intentional learning communities, fugitive schools, and other kinds of alter-academies. We’ll consider the various forms they take, their operating models, their core principles and politics, and their sustainability and scalability. 

🚨🚨 We’ll meet virtually this week to accommodate our external guests!

Guests: Kameelah Janaan Rasheed, Caroline Woolard + Eli Meyerhoff
Please note: we’ll be meeting at a different time today – 1:00 to 2:30pm – to accommodate our guests. We’ll record the session for those who can’t attend!
