Rupturing Tradition: Ancient Past, Contemporary Praxis (Course Three)
This course is free and open access. You do not need to subscribe to Activist Graduate School to watch this course.
Rupturing Tradition is an online graduate seminar on Classics and Activism.
We are bringing together two lines of inquiry not traditionally put in conversation: first, the history and practice of activism as a force for reconfiguring academic knowledge; second, primary texts from Greco-Roman antiquity.
The result of a collaboration between two Princeton professors, Brooke Holmes and Dan-el Padilla Peralta, and Activist Graduate School co-founders Micah White and Chiara Ricciardone, Rupturing Tradition will be taught online at the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities at Princeton then disseminated to activists and scholars worldwide via Activist Graduate School.
By putting academic and activist knowledge on equal footing, Rupturing Tradition aims to incubate new modes of practicing knowledge of “the classics” as a public good.
