Experiments in Decolonizing the University: Towards an Ecology of Study (Hardback)

£90.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This book is available as open access through the Bloomsbury Open Access programme and is available on www.bloomsburycollections.com.



The book addresses the need to reconsider the relation between university and society, a debate which has been discussed for centuries from the Middle Ages to Kant, Humboldt and Newman. Hans Schildermans builds on the philosophy and theory of higher education, drawing on the work of John Dewey, Donna Haraway, William James, Bruno Latour, Martin Savransky, Isabelle Stengers and Alfred North Whitehead. The theoretical discussion is undertaken in relation to case studies of study practices of the Palestinian experimental university 'Campus in Camps'. The book avoids the two positions that are traditionally defended: the idea of the autonomous university on the one hand, and the capitalized university on the other hand. Schildermans emphases the importance of study practices as a site of resistance against current neoliberal and capitalist reforms of the university. The book will appeal to activists, critical academics and those interested in the fate of higher education today.
