If you are interested in discussing, researching, keeping up-to-date and even creating a co-operative university, there is a mailing list you can join.
The list was first set up by a group of people who attended the Co-operative Education Against the Crises conference earlier in the year. More recently, Dan Cook published a report and the Institute of Education hosted a seminar on ‘co-operative universities’.
Please join the mailing list and introduce yourself. A number of SSC scholars are involved.
The mailing list is hosted by Mayfirst/People Link, a politically progressive member-run collective of technologists.
Earlier today I picked up a Cooperative Bank Welcome Pack for the Social Science Centre. Now that we have a bank account it means we can set up the Join pages and send out our letters of invitation once these are finalised. It also means we can do other things that require a bank account like applying for funding. Not to mention paying for stuff! It’s another small step on the way to launching the Centre formally.
