This class has been taken over from "On Democracies" proposed at The Public School New York. According to their proposal it would be great to plan a weeklong intensive or weekly field-trip based, site-specific reading group for the summer of 2012 on the topic of democracy. Building upon past classes such as "...there is nothing less passive than the act of fleeing" in the summer of 2010, "On Democracies" will take place in public spaces, privately owned public spaces, inside amenable organizations, and (possibly) in commercial spaces. The new series will include screenings, presentations, and discussions that will explore issues pertaining to parliamentary systems, electoral processes, citizenship, and participation in and resistance to democracies.
With the May Day coming up we could start to plan the series.
