|POLT 584, Occupy Democracy: Radical/Participatory Democracy in Theory & Practice|
“Study Away” right here in New Hampshire!
Camp Merrowvista is an eco-educational, experiential learning site one hour
north of campus. The camp’s leaders will help you take the academic concepts
of democratic theory and translate them into activities in order to test, live out,
and experiment with the concepts.
Taught by Professor Marla Brettschneider, this hybrid course features online study plus a retreat at Camp Merrowvista
in Tuftonboro, NH. You’ll use the spirit and lessons developing in the Occupy movement to study, critique, and enact
radical and participatory democratic theory and practice. You will engage in a critical examination of Occupy and democratic
theory and spend four days together to learn in creative, active, personal, and collective ways to innovate and
energize principles of radical democracy for our time.
