Playback, Hip-Hop, Alternative Media & Social Change:

A ten day program for artists, performers, activists and media makers interested in socially engaged art and media projects. Includes core training in Playback Theater, which encompasses improvisation, new story forms, music and hip-hop.

The Revolutionary Tradition in the Third World, facilitated by Lincoln Van Sluytman (during Remaking Society)

From the Haitian Revolution to the post-World War II era to the present day, we will examine the emergence of colonialist values with consolidation of capitalism as a global power; the political legacy of dependence and domination; and how these factors have shaped the form and content of popular liberation movements.

Land, Food and Community, facilitated by Brian Tokar (during Remaking Society)

How can we rethink our relationships to the land, and to how we obtain our food? Combining class discussions, hands-on learning, and field trips, we will explore land based popular struggles, the origins of global agribusiness, and biotechnology, as well as the emergence of local alternatives and a global food sovereignty movement.

Gender Movements and Freedom, facilitated by Ace McArleton (during Remaking Society)

We will examine new social movements that address gender, sex, and sexuality, particularly feminism, gay and lesbian liberation, as well as the transgender, queer and gender queer movements. How can these movements can be rethought in relation to each other, and society as a whole, especially in light of class, "race," ethnicity, and other factors?


The Summer Institute offers a college-level curriculum. The acceptance of transfer credit directly from the ISE is at the discretion of students' home institutions. Students may also take these programs for credit through Burlington College for an additional fee. Students frequently earn as many as nine college credits for one month's participation in the ISE summer institute.

Year-round programs

The ISE also offers a BA program in collaboration with Burlington College and an MA program in collaboration with Prescott College. These programs combine onsite studies at the ISE with student-directed independent studies. Areas of study include social theory, nature philosophy, science and technology studies, globalization, community organizing and development, ecological and social activism, food systems and agricultural policy, ecological design and building, alternative education, and many others.
