  • Another Education Is Possible — I hope

    Nonstop faculty member Jean Gregorek gave this presentation on the state of higher education as part of the inaugural event of Nonstop’s ‘festival week’ She describes this presentation as:

    ‘another education is possible–i hope’ was a first pass at constructing a genealogy of various strands of utopian thought that have gone into the making of the educational ideals of Antioch College, culminating in a (too) brief meditation on the influence of the ongoing alter-globalization movement and current thinking on bioregionalism and what these new directions might imply for a small and struggling educational institution.
