Occupy Harvard Think Tank
Tuesdays and Fridays, 1-2p
The New Harvard Library Think Tank is a topical discussion forum where we will engage and collaborate on topics at the heart of our communities, the libraries, and occupation. Our philosophy is that each of us – students, professors, workers – enters into this space with a wealth of insight, experience, and knowledge. By substantively engaging with each other in a facilitated, horizontal forum, great things happen not only to our understanding and concomitant actions, but also knowledge itself. We together have the resources to change the world.
How it works: Each Think Tank will begin with a prompting question or topic that will open the floor for discussion. These prompting topics will be listed on the day’s schedule of activities listed at http://www.occupyharvard.net. (Please offer topic suggestions either by dropping them in the suggestion box or by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org.) There are no leaders in the discussion and no rank or position confers privilege. Rather, all participants are asked to contribute together on an equal basis. Each Think Tank is recorded and archived on the web, so that the discussions we begin can and will be continued. Too often ideas are brought forth and then allowed to disappear. The Think Tank will persist.
