Radical Summer College Offers Free Classes

Published July 14, 2011

An event billing itself as “The Radical Summer University” is offering free courses on a variety of subjects pertaining to political and sociological thought.
As stated on their Facebook page, the school “seeks to connect radical activism and ideas.” This radical activism could pertain to economic justice, environmentalism, feminism, democracy, minority rights and more. The lectures themselves hope to bring forward ideas on how these causes can be best brought forth, through multiple means of expression.
Each course features one or more lectures. The classes will be held at Reykjavíkur Akademían, at Hringbraut 121, from 13 to 19 August. Weekday classes will be held during the evening (19:30-20:50 and 21:00-22:20) and weekend classes will be held in the afternoon (13:00-14:20, 14:30-15:50 and 16:00-17:20).
You can check out the official site (in Icelandic) for more details on what the courses entail. All classes are completely free of charge.
To learn more, you can also write to sumarhaskolinn@gmail.com.
