The Rise of the Neoliberal University and the End of Liberal Studies
Contributors are sought for an Edited Volume on: "The Rise of the Neoliberal University and the End of Liberal Studies"
This proposed volume is intended to advance the discussion of the "corporate" university toward the questions and problems presented by globalization and the supposed expansion of "free" trade.
It is our hope that this volume will
present advanced analyses of the crises that beset higher education and, in particular, the humanities
help to define and describe the meaning and circulation of "neoliberalism" among a variety of disciplines including history, philosophy, political science, and economics
trace the influence of neoliberal economic ideas and theorists (Hayek, Friedman, Stigler, Becker, et. al.) on university policies and initiatives, especially those related to curriculum,
governance, resource allocation, and academic labor
discuss the "cultural reconstruction," or the "privatization," of the educational public sector as a deliberate policy goal.
Abstracts and complete drafts accompanied by a brief CV are encouraged from a wide variety of geopolitical regions, disciplinary fields, and methodological approaches.
