About Revolution and Ideology
“Revolution and Ideology” was started by Nick Lee and Jared Benson, university instructors of sociology and history respectively. Nick and Jared currently co-teach three humanities courses titled “Resistance and Revolution,” “Ideology and Isms,” and “Stateless Societies.” In the first, They explore the theories and historical examples of revolution and social change. In the second, they examine various historical and modern ideologies and the ways in which they motivate how people think and behave today. In the third, they analyze various theories and histories of stateless societies. In this podcast, they explore the ideas from their courses.
