The Capitalisation of the Academy: Intellectual Property, The University, and The Work of Knowledge and Information Professionals (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The Capitalisation of the Academy: Intellectual Property, the University, and the Work of Knowledge and Information Professionals is a highly relevant and accessible book designed to introduce readers to a 'big picture' account of the dynamics associated with the establishment of the new information and knowledge-based economy.

The author demonstrates that at the core of this dynamic is the contentious issue of corporate ownership of intellectual property and the likelihood it will have ramifications not only on professionals and knowledge workers in general, but also on the public at large.

She argues that if business and commercial interests are free to appropriate, to exercise monopolistic control, and to exploit the generation, exchange, dissemination, storage, and retrieval of knowledge and information for the limited purposes of private profit, it will likely risk the freedom of inquiry, the free flow and exchange of ideas, and the unimpeded public access to knowledge and information on which scientific research and technological innovation depend.

Dr Helen Raduntz is currently an Adjunct Research Fellow attached to the Centre for Research in Education, Equity and Work and the School of Education within the University of South Australia. Grant is an academic and activist. He writes and reserches in the areas of Marxist sociology, the philosophy of science and critical education. His recent book, Critical Realism for Marxist Sociology of Education (Routledge, 2016) draws on contemproary developments in realist philosophy to underpin a rethinking of Marxist approaches to radical activism and revolutionary pedagogy. After retiring as a full-time academic worker in 2019, Grant has taken a position as adjunct academic at the University of South Australia in Adelaide, South Australia.
