radical school

; spanning the East River from Manhattan to Brooklyn in New York City; 1595 feet (486m) span In 1969-70 he taught at Alternate U, a countercultural radical school based on Fourteenth Street in Manhattan. He was hired by Goddard College in the fall of 1973 to lecture on technology; his lectures led to a teaching position and to the creation of the Social Ecology Studies program in 1974 and the Institute for Social Ecology soon thereafter, of which he became the director. In 1974 he was hired by Ramapo College in Mahwah (Mahwah, New Jersey), New Jersey, where he quickly became a full professor. The ISE was a hub for experimentation and study of appropriate technology in the 1970s. In 1977-78 he was a member of the Spruce Mountain Affinity Group of the Clamshell Alliance. Also in 1977, he published ''The Spanish Anarchists'', a history of the Spanish anarchist movement up to the revolution of 1936. During this period, Bookchin forged some ties with the nascent libertarian (Libertarianism) movement. "He spoke at a Libertarian Party (Libertarian Party (United States)) convention and contributed to a newsletter edited by Karl Hess. In 1976, he told a Libertarian (Libertarian Party (United States)) activist that 'If I were a voting man (Non-voting), I'd vote for MacBride (Roger MacBride)' — LP (Libertarian Party (United States)) nominee Roger MacBride, that is." Education After graduating at 16 from Episcopal High School (Episcopal High School (Baton Rouge)), he enrolled in Louisiana State University, transferring two years later to Louisiana Tech. Beginning with a start at an architecture degree, followed by mechanical engineering, he fell into computers and robotics. He excelled in subjects he was interested in—architecture, economics, mechanical engineering, and military history—but was held back by his impractical goals such as language arts. His earlier dream of space colonization remained, and was joined by a love for robotics. After another two years at Louisiana Tech, in the fall of 1980, Wright moved on to The New School in Manhattan. He lived in an apartment over Balducci’s, in Greenwich Village, and spent his spare time searching for spare parts in local electronics surplus stores. After one year at the New School, Wright returned to Baton Rouge without his degree, Commons:Category:Manhattan, New York City WikiPedia:Manhattan Dmoz:Regional North America United States New York Localities N New York City Manhattan
