University Struggles: We Are the Crisis!

eliumn's picture

We will read some recent texts about strategies for university struggles from some accomplished organizing collectives in California and Washington:  Advance the Struggle, Gathering Forces, and Democracy Insurgent.  These folks are quite impressive in terms of the theoretical sophistication of their reflections on the current struggles.

Here are links to a couple key articles that we can start with for reflecting on March 4th and strategies...

We can also read texts that they draw on, as well as other reflections on recent struggles across the US, in Europe, and around the world.   Other options for reading include broader analyses of higher education (such as Marc Bousquet's How the University Works) and its history (such as Christopher Newfield's Unmaking the Public University: the Forty Year Assault on the Middle Class).

We will invite other education activists from around the world to join us in these discussions via blog conversations on common readings.

The time and day of the class will be determined by all participants through an online poll here:
