The Imperial University: Academic Repression and Scholarly Dissent
The Imperial University
Academic Repression and Scholarly Dissent
Paperback      ISBN: 0816680906
Editors Chatterjee and Maira offer this critique of the notion of free scholarship in academia. A lengthy introduction argues for ways that imperialism is manifested in the treatment of student protest, limited legitimation of ethnic and gender studies, security culture on campus, and odd alliances between supposedly liberal academic ventures and conservative groups. Contributions discuss the University of Hawaii, involvement of the military and prison-industrial complex with higher education, neoliberal logic of university governance including the extent of faculty governance, boycott and divestment, Chican@ studies, Zionism, and the Israel/Palestine controversy, feminism and sexual politics, and the consequences faced by faculty and students who challenge the presented imperialist paradigms.
