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 is to take a break from Reed's rigorous curriculum and spend a week learning things you always wanted to know about but never had the time for, be it the history of punk, the birds of Oregon, throat-singing, Bollywood dance, underwater basketweaving—you name it!
Classes are led by students, alumni, staff, and professors, and are open to the entire Reed community. Length and format are up to you. We've seen classes range from hourlong presentations to afternoon excursions to multi-day workshops.
