New York University will offer a class next semester on Occupy Wall Street (possibly two). Perhaps it's an attempt to keep their students in class making use of their students loans, rather than camped out in Zuccotti Park and other parks complaining about them.

According to the free student newspaper of NYU: Washington Square News (WSN), the university's "Department of Social and Cultural Analysis" will offer a class about the "history and politics of debt and take a deeper look at the economic crisis the movement is protesting."


NYU confirmed with the Business & Media Institute (BMI) that the undergraduate course: "Cultures and Economies: Occupy Wall Street" will be available next semester and taught by Professor Lisa Duggan.

May seem odd tactic. But back in the '60 - '70s some college's put "revolution" into the titles of courses and other events to draw students to attend.

Ironically, you would need to be in OWS’s hated “1 percent” to pay the tuition bill at NYU, which was ranked 2nd on the 2011-2012 list of America's most expensive colleges from CampusGrottoYou can't make this shit up. LMAO.
She (Duggan) also writes for the left-wing publication The Nation (which gets funding from the left's big donor: George Soros).I am...wait for it, wait for it...SHOCKED!!!111!!eleventy!!
