The Greek word Paideia (Παιδεία) is difficult to translate, but denotes education in its broadest sense. For the ancient Greeks, this included philosophy, poetry, mathematics, physics, rhetoric, gymnastics, music, medicine, and many other disciplines.
The animating idea behind Paideia at Reed is to take a break from the rigorous classical curriculum and spend a week learning things you always wanted to know about but never had the time for. The history of punk. The birds of Oregon. Throat-singing. Bollywood dance. Underwater basketweaving. You get the idea.
Paideia 2017 will take place January 14–22. Check out all of the Paideia events.
Note: Paideia events are marked as private. You must be logged into the events page with your Reed credentials to see most Paideia events. Dr. Demento's shows are the only public events that will show if you are not logged in.
