Post-Corporate University: Bibliography

Page history last edited by Wesley Shumar 13 years, 5 months ago

[I have offered, initially, this limited bibliography to suggest possible ways of looking at the question of the University I see this list as an alternative (but important) part of this manuscript, as it presents a striated, heuristic take on the project.  Annotations and additions are encouraged.]

I've added a few texts here that I've found useful in considering a post-structuralist approach to the university. In particular, Lyotard's _Political Writings_ offers some good texts of his that consider the university both pre- and post-1968.

Hi, last year I wrote a research proposal for a project on the ideological landscape of UBC Okanagan. It centered around issues of hostility towards non-traditional approaches to pedagogy, mainly feminist pedagogy. I wanted to know if my perception that people on campus (student, admin, faculty) are hostile to feminist pedagogy was reflective of an actual condition in the school's pedagogical aura. I made a list of sources that I found helpful in my research. I have contributed this list to the document in a section below all other sources. I did not add Walter Benjamin, but I think his concept of media aura can be applied to institutions. Of course, it is reminiscent of Althusser and the inner workings of an ideological landscape. Aura or ideological landscape? Is the difference only a question of semantics?

I've added some sources to the bibliography - everything that I'm currently aware of that specifically addresses corporate-restructuring of the university. There's lots of good stuff out there and I wanted to direct folks to one essay in particular: Xiaoying Wang, "Farewell to the Humanities," Rethinking Marxism 17 (2005). Wang considers why academic performance standards now manifest as an increase in the quantity of work, particularly in the humanities, which has, “no external frame of reference for evaluating its products except the academic pecking order that it itself defined only quantitatively.”
If anyone is interested in discussing Wang's essay, I'd be happy to organize a forum through this site.
