Lessons from 2019 Instantiation

Structural Ideas from Post-Summer 2019
- Part of a broader "Samba school" program that CDSC might operate as over each summer?
- What is the periodicity of the STC? 3 years? 4 years?
Reading Ideas From 2019 Planning
- Axelrod's wikipedia:The Evolution of Cooperation. A more controversial suggestion would be Kropotkin's wikipedia:Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution —mako๛
- Claude Shannon (or at least someone else's summary of information theory) Aaronshaw (talk) 16:38, 7 May 2019 (EDT)
- Hayek (on information) Aaronshaw (talk) 16:39, 7 May 2019 (EDT)
- If we want to read something ecological I would pick "organizations evolving" by Reuf and Aldrich. It may be a bit too high level and its kind of a textbook. I'd also be excited to do Marx, Weber, Durkheim. Another idea for a social theory book is "Constructing Social Theories" by Stinchcomb. Groceryheist (talk) 18:24, 5 June 2019 (EDT)

- Jo Freeman's Tyranny of Structurelessness Sneha (talk) 11:49, 6 June 2019 (EDT) (this is very short and important! there's no excuse not to do it —mako๛ 20:44, 5 June 2020 (CEST))
- Jessica Nembhard's Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice Sneha (talk) 11:49, 6 June 2019 (EDT)
- Francesa Polletta's Freedom is an Endless Meeting Sneha (talk) 11:49, 6 June 2019 (EDT) (This is a new classic and and I'd really like to do it. —mako๛)
