GRIID Announces New Fall Classes

September 11, 2009

We are pleased to announce that GRIID will be offering two classes this Fall. The first is A History of US Social Movements, a 6-week session using as a primary text Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the US. In the Social Movements class we will explore the rich history of social change movements, discuss tactics & strategies, and talk about what we can learn from those movements for today.

The second class that is being offered is a new one that will explore the current US occupation of Afghanistan. The class will also be a 6-week session where we will explore the recent history of US involvement in Afghanistan, from the Soviet occupation of the 80s, to the rise of the Taliban and the current US occupation. The primary text for this book will be Bleeding Afghanistan: Washington, Warlords, and the Propaganda of Silence.

The Social Movements class will held on Wednesdays from 7 – 9pm, starting October 7 and the Afghanistan class will be held on Mondays from 8 – 10pm beginning on October 12.

The cost for each class is $20 and participants are required to get their own copy of each book that will be used. The classes will be held at 1134 Wealthy.
