The Social Science Centre, Lincoln “offers opportunities to engage in a co-operative experience of higher education. Run as a not-for-profit co-operative, the SSC is organised on the basis of democratic, non-hierarchical principles, with all members having equal involvement in the life and work of the SSC. We study themes that draw on the core subjects in social science: sociology, politics and philosophy, as well as psychology, economics, journalism and photography”.
It was initiated by social movement activists and researchers, scientists & educators and encourages people to participate through research & learning. Social Science Centre is local in orientation and concerned with research, knowledge production & information access.
It was launched in 2010 and is ongoing.
