Anti-University Now Festival Event - Rethinking the University through the...
Fri 16 June 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
The University is in crisis and this event will think through whether it is an institution worth saving in its current form through an exploration of alternative ways of seeing, doing, and knowing education. Connecting learning to the 'Right to the City' movement and 'education as a commons' allows us to re-imagine public education, for the public, in public and wonder what might invented to form an intellectual public outside the walls of formal institutions and privately held knowledge. At this event, Cassie will present some ideas from recent research followed by a dialogue with those present interested in notions such as teaching in public, public intellectualism, political learning for all, learning as performance, the emancipation of knowledge from behind the walls of institutions, and the equitable commons of different ways of knowing.
