In, Against, and Beyond The University: for the courage of boundary-less toil

Richard Hall, DMU Learning Exchanges, Oct 12, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"It isn't for the moment that you are struck that you need courage, but for the long uphill climb back to sanity and faith and security." Anne Morrow Lindbergh. A nice turn of phrase. A good lead-in that challenges professors to question their role as complicit in the domination of the wealthy over the rest of us (at least, that's how I'm reading it). "In the mass of protests that form a politics of events against austerity, academics might consider their participatory traditions and positions, and how they actively contribute to the dissolution of their expertise as a commodity, in order to support other socially-constructed forms of production."
