Neoliberal restructuring includes an unprecedented attack on the autonomy of universities, their faculties, administrators, support staffs and students. How has your work—as a professor, graduate student, educational support professional, administrator or researcher—changed in response to policies designed to remake the University in the image of the for-profit business concern? How have you and your colleagues organized resistance to these changes?
The premise of this special issue of World Economic Review: Contemporary Policy Issues—an on-line peer reviewed journal with a global subscription of 13,000—is that every aspect of post-secondary education is affected by the corporatization of the university. Thus, we seek contributions from all disciplinary fields and every location within the university. We welcome papers exploring the intellectual, personal, pedagogical, and theoretical dimensions of the attack on public higher education.
