(Newser) – Occupy Wall Street 101? New York University is offering not one, but two classes on the protest movement next semester, the Wall Street Journal reports. One course will be offered to undergraduates for credit as part of the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis; the class has a rotating focus and will look into the history, politics, meaning, and impact of the movement this time around. Guest speakers will include ... protesters, of course. The other class is a graduate-level seminar. (Read more NYU stories.)
