Beyond Neoliberalism, Academic Capitalism, and (Neo-)Patriarchy: Redefining the Public and Private Roles of Academics in the Arab Region
The academic enterprise has been rife with problems in the 21st century - from underfunded institutions, to the undermining of social science fields, to overworked and underpaid faculty members, to the massification of higher education leading to quality issues in academia, to counterproductive and patriarchal structures that undermine the ideal of education. The role of the academic has never been more important nor overstretched.
In this lecture, we intend to unpack some of the systems hindering academics, and think about new ways in which academics can have greater impact and shift the system from the bottom-up.
