The ClⒶgsborough College Student ChⒶrter
Having freely enrolled as students at Clagsborough College, and having freely selected to read for a licentiate in literary subversion and dissidence, with all honesty and diligence and humility, we shall:
bullet shape our studies around the insights of learning theory and autodidactism;
bullet develop advanced reading and writing skills, based on an understanding of language whereby we critically examine the ways in which language is a tool of governmental power which shapes who we are, what we do, and how we make sense of the world;
bullet become conversant with how the modern world is built upon and continues to be politically and imaginatively shaped by colonialism and capitalism, such that political, social, economic and environmental justice is impossible without democratic revolutions worldwide;
bullet critically examine social concepts such as age, childhood, class, crime, disability, economics, the environment, education, family, gender, health, housing, media, neurodiversity, power, race, religion, sexuality, society, text and work from a post-disciplinary perspective;
bullet acknowledge anthropogenic climate change and the collapse of biodiversity both pose an imminent existential threat to Homo sapiens, and such a threat can only be defeated by grassroots non-violent direct action, beginning with a switch to a plant-based diet;
bullet believe communities and societies governed by socialist principles and non-coercive democratic participatory decision making are together likely to prove the more effective and compassionate means of establishing and maintaining a just and peaceful world;
bullet recognize how all forms of social and environmental injustice are multidimensional, such that racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, ableism, and neurelitism are discursive, performative, structural, and historical, as well as being mutually co-constitutive;
bullet engage in revolutionary non-violent direct action, such as strikes, marches, community education, lobbying, blogging, civil disobedience, boycotts and culture jamming, to defend individuals and communities from social, political, economic, and environmental injustice;
bullet apply the knowledge and skills acquired through studying for a licentiate in literary subversion and dissidence to write creatively, such that writing is pursued as something that is of value in itself and as a vital tool for effecting both personal and political change;
bullet facilitate a peaceful and equitable campus culture such that everyone feels safe.
