Clagsborough College is renowned for allowing
students to study and think about whatever they want, when they
want. There's no pass or fail here. We presuppose that those who choose to attend
do so because they are self-motivated and self-reliant learners.
Each student is encouraged to research educational theory and evaluate their own performance. Credits are awarded by consensus.
Matriculation is a wholly democratic process. Self-deception is futile because degrees awarded by the college
are recognised only by Ikhwan al-Idries (the Brethren of
Enoch), a union devoted to worldwide non-violent subversion and dissidence.
Our ancient order facilitates peaceful anarcho-socialist
revolutions across the globe.
Likewise, students are encouraged to systematically develop
their own programmes of study. The aim is neither to emulate academic
research methods nor to to acquire skills for the job market.
Preparing for work in the neoliberal polity is, we believe, like polishing one's neck
for the noose. The supposition is that attendance at our college
is motivated by a fervent desire to peacefully dismantle the
free market economy and instigate a libertarian socialist revolution
For his licentiate, Julian Yaqub has developed
a modular system with the intention of cultivating his creative
writing skills to the level of literary art. As a platform for
pursuing this endeavour, Julian intends to develop his ability
to (1) appreciate global literature written in English and in
translation; (2) understand literary texts in relation to their
historical contexts and cultural values; (3) construct a
critical vocabulary to analyse a variety of texts, including
speculative fiction, drama and poetry, as well as
non-fiction; (4) evaluate
these texts in relation to a number of theoretical approaches, including
postcolonial and gender theory; and (5) write creatively as a method of appreciating, analysing, and evaluating selected texts.
