Programme: Governing Academic Life

A provisional programme for the ‘Governing Academic Life’ conference at the LSE and the British Library (25-26th June 2014) is now available on their website

Plenary speakers include Gurminder Bhambra, Wendy Brown, Mike Power, Mitchell Dean, Lois McNay, and Des Freedman, with parallel sessions on:

(Anti-)Social Science, the neoliberal art of government, and higher education

What is an author, now? Futures of scholarly communication and academic publishing

Feminism and the knowledge factory

Co-operative higher education

Governing academic freedom

Teaching the ungovernable: rethinking the student as public

Measurement, management and the market university

Para-academic Practices: becoming ungovernable?

In connection to the participants in the conference on ‘Walter Benjamin, Pedagogy and the Politics of Youth’ out of which this blog first developed, I should mention that Andrew McGettigan and Mike Neary are both contributing what promise to be excellent papers. 

ImageI’ll be speaking about ‘The Ungovernable in Education: On Unintended Learning Outcomes’ in a session on Thursday 26th with Sam Dallyn, Carl Cederström, and Mike Marinetto. Sam, Carl,and Mike all contributed to the stream I organized on ‘Critical Theory and Education‘ at the International Critical Theory Conference of Rome in 2013.

Book online to attend.
