A poster produced by Atelier Populaire during the May 1968 Paris student and worker revolt. On May 16, 1968, artists and art students began a permanent occupation of the École des Beaux-Arts. In the occupied school, Atelier Populaire produced and distributed a series of posters to "give concrete support to the great movement of the workers on strike who are occupying their factories in defiance of the Gaullist government."

Description

Hosted by 221A Librarian Vincent Tao, the Autonomous Education Study Group will investigate ‘the university’ as a means and ends of political struggle. The syllabus will read critical theories of education against documents of ‘official discourse’ produced by academic institutions in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. This study will serve to map the terrain of today’s neoliberalizing universities and draw a horizon for organizing student power.

Thurs, June 21 – The Neoliberal University
Thurs, June 28 – Autonomous Education: Case Study 1
Thurs, July 5 – Autonomous Education: Case Study 2
Thurs, July 12 – Organizing for Student Power
