NYU is adding a course about Occupy Wall Street, which is fitting considering how much of the student body took part.
The course will explore the history and politics of debt and take a deeper look at the economic crisis the movement is protesting. It will be taught by SCA profesor Lisa Duggan. "Occupy Wall Street has done us all the service of illuminating [the fact] that the economy operates within the framework of political, social and cultural conflicts, and not outside them," she said. Duggan also hopes students will learn how the current crisis has developed and understand how it has affected the world.There will also be a graduate-level course this spring.
