Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, is offering a course on “How to Overthrow the State.”

According to the description on the university’s website, the class, which is officially titled “Writing seminar for first years,” is being taught by Assistant Professor of History Matt Gildner. The course “places each student at the head of a popular revolutionary movement aiming to overthrow a sitting government and forge a better society.”

“How will you attain power? How will you communicate with the masses? How do you plan on improving the lives of the people? How will you deal with the past?” the description states. “From Frantz Fanon to Che Guevara to Mohandas Gandhi and others, we explore examples of revolutionary thought and action from across the Global South.”

Students who take the course will be asked to complete “a variety of writing exercises,” including “producing a Manifesto…”
