Two-day international conference "Rethinking the university after Bologna: new concepts and practices beyond tradition and the market". This conference first wants to identify problems in both the entrepreneurial model of the university, and in the ‘old’ or traditional model it replaces. It then wants to look for new ways of organizing, practicing and conceptualizing university life. It will look for these alternatives both inside and outside the university.
We accept paper/workshop proposals on the following topics:
·What are the possible dysfunctions of both the traditional models and the entrepreneurial alternative of universities?
·Why should we look for alternative models of higher education and research?
·What are the side effects of the entrepreneurial university?
·What are the consequences of commercialising higher education?
·Are there trade offs between accountability and academic freedom?
·What are the alternatives for non-institutionalised universities?
·What is the future for new open source movements, open access systems and open educational resources?
·How promising are new organisational alternatives for higher education and academic research?
Proposals should be submitted in English the latest by April 30th 2008 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This conference will be organized by the University Centre Saint-Ignatius Antwerp (UCSIA) on December 12-13 2008, Antwerp, Belgium.
