The Slow Death of the University. A few years ago, I was being shown around a large, very technologically advanced university in Asia by its proud president.

The Slow Death of the University

Having waxed lyrical about his gleaming new business school and state-of-the-art institute for management studies, the president paused to permit me a few words of fulsome praise. I remarked instead that there seemed to be no critical studies of any kind on his campus. He looked at me bemusedly, as though I had asked him how many Ph.D.’s in pole dancing they awarded each year, and replied rather stiffly "Your comment will be noted.

" He then took a small piece of cutting-edge technology out of his pocket, flicked it open and spoke a few curt words of Korean into it, probably "Kill him. " The corporate university and its threat to academic freedom. Neoliberalism has facilitated the emergence of the 'corporate' university, which dangerously prioritises market rationality and public relations over academic freedom.

The corporate university and its threat to academic freedom

The principle of academic freedom is increasingly regarded with institutional indifference, if not contempt, across the world. One recent example was the revelation that New Zealand Police effectively tried to censor the gang research of the sociologist Jarrod Gilbert by barring his access to “basic and uncontroversial police data” and by insisting that they "retain the sole right to veto” the publication of any research findings. The reluctance of the New Zealand government to say anything about the substantive issues involved in this case offered little in the way of contrast.

Its lack of interest in the principle of academic freedom matched its previous nonchalance about press freedom. Stefan Collini · Who are the spongers now? · LRB 21 January 2016. In After Virtue: A Study in Moral Theory (1981), Alasdair MacIntyre raised the disquieting possibility that what we take to be ‘the’ language of morality now amounts to little more than a collection of verbal remains – husks from which the kernels of coherent moral beliefs have long since been removed.

Stefan Collini · Who are the spongers now? · LRB 21 January 2016

‘What we possess … are the fragments of a conceptual scheme, parts which now lack those contexts from which their significance derived. We possess indeed simulacra of morality, we continue to use many of the key expressions. What Makes a University Public?: Privatization, Environmental Racism, and UC Berkeley’s Real Estate Office.

Eelco Runia (@eelcorunia) The Corporations Devouring American Colleges. If there’s one thing you can count on in these uncertain times, it’s that the cost of college will rise—and then rise some more. Almost every year, whether the economy is in a state of boom or bust, tuition hits a record high. But why? Is it really twice as expensive to provide a degree as it was 20 years ago? Colleges go to absurd and extraordinary lengths to avoid answering this question, reporting their financials in a way that deliberately obscures how much money different units spend and make.

They don’t even like to use the word “profits,” preferring euphemisms like “surplus.” Alfa’s in opstand: ‘Het is tijd om met de vuist op tafel te slaan’
