Panel discussion and book presentation
With Anna Curcio and Isabella Pinto (Edu-Factory Collective, http://edu-factory.org).
As was the factory, so now is the university. Where once the factory
was a paradigmatic site of struggle between workers and capitalists,
so now the university is a key space of conflict, where the ownership
of knowledge, the reproduction of the labour force, and the creation
of social and cultural stratifications are all at stake. This is to
say the university is not just another institution subject to
sovereign and governmental controls, but a crucial site in which wider
social struggles are won and lost.
