Recent years have seen the world shaken by financial crises and political protest. Some of the driving questions behind these events concern the financial status of the university, its workers and students, and the rapid, global changes in the value of intellectual and immaterial labor within and beyond the campus. Attentive to such transformations and their political and social consequences, this workshop (at the University of Wisconsin-Madison) explores emerging currents within scholarship and political organizing that call into question the neoliberalization of the university and explore its alternatives. Our aim is to engage contemporary theoretical interventions alongside the voices from popular struggle.

Sponsored by the UW-Madison Center for the Humanities and the A.W. Mellon Foundation.
