According to this, the corporate university is already in decline. What of the entrepreneurial university, however: is it the same thing as the corporate university? I am inclined to think not.

I do wish I had seen this panel at the MLA:

MLA Panel 803. Finance Capital and the University

Sunday, 10 January, 12:00 noon–1:15 p.m., Lone Star C, JW Marriott

Program arranged by the forum TC Marxism, Literature, and Society

Presiding: Christopher John Newfield, Univ. of California, Santa Barbara

1. “Securitization and University of Finance,” Amanda Armstrong-Price, Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor

2. “Financialization and ‘The Wisconsin Idea’ in the Twenty-First Century,” Richard Grusin, Univ. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

3. “Tech Transfer and Finance after Academic Capitalism,” Lenora Hanson, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison

4. “The Force of Diversity: Risk, Privatization, and the Salaita Affair,” Nick Mitchell, Univ. of California, Riverside

Keywords:

Academic Labor, Finance Capital, Debt, Critical University Studies, Activism, World-Historical Crises that only critical humanists can solve, according to Eileen A. Joy, Aranye Fradenburg, Julie Carlson, Alan Thomas, Cathy Davidson, David Palumbo-Liu, Ken Wissoker, Glenn Hendler, Bruce Burgett, and others.

I did see this presentation and I recommend everyone read it in its entirety.

Axé.
