H-Communal Societies is concerned with topics related to intentional communities, including the academic study of communities, participation and membership in them, and curatorship and other activities related to the preservation of historic communal sites and artifacts.
We're thinking of starting a minor in Communal Studies at the University of Southern Indiana, and as part of the application process we are asked if there are similar minors or majors at other universities. Does anyone know of a minor or major in Communal Studies (or related field) at universities in North America, Europe or elsewhere?
Thanks for any help.
