Reclaiming the University

A short note i wrote on fb:

https://reclaimingouruniversity.wordpress.com/

This is an interesting initiative challenging the neoliberal university from within the Univ of Aberdeen. For those of us interested in a future for UEL perhaps we need to put together our own manifesto down similar lines. Otherwise the future, if we have one, looks bleak. We need to challenge, resist, disrupt and refuse the agendas been offered to us, and imagine and present progressive alternatives.

As Harney and Moten say in the Undercommons ‘the only possible relationship to the university today is a criminal one.’ Either we fight or accept the decline of what was once a radical, innovative and challenging place for students and staff.
