Video: Robert Meister on Opposing University Financialization

Video is now available from our recent event with Robert Meister, Opposing University Financialization from the Inside: An Autoethnography. This event was part of the new 3CT collaborative project The Corporate University.

Drawing on his own experience at University of California Santa Cruz, Meister identified a tension in which both the corporate campus and the professional discipline are on one side and transdisciplinary academic self-governance is on the other. His lecture opened a discussion about how to repoliticize universities by gaining distance from the financial models through which administrations govern faculty.
