Course Description: This course is led by one of the world's leading public-intellectuals and activists for women especially for the Kurdish plight in the middle-east. This is a unique opportunity to study with someone who's life is devoted to justice, someone whom doesn't simply write or speak about issues but embodies them.
The course is live, but if you can't make the live sessions, don't worry you can watch the recordings. See below on how you can join the discussion and talks live on our Internet Platform: Big Blue Button.
Be Challenged: This course is live and interactive. You can take it just for enrichment or you can take it Pass/Fail. If you pass the course you will receive 1 Silver GCAS token. Earn 5 GCAS Silver tokens, and receive one Gold GCAS Token plus a free course. 2 Gold GCAS Tokens = 1 Platinum GCAS Token. 1 Platinum Token = 100 GCAS Dollars. GCAS Dollars are for you to use to purchase GCAS books and other goods we'll sell starting in our online bookstore starting January, 2018. In addition to a school we're starting to build an economy based on knowledge and ideas not on profits. Join us!
To pass the course, you will need to respond in the class forum at least 2 times between lectures or sessions (see schedule below). Each time must be at least 150 words.
