History of University Life

5 June – History of University Life Research Seminar with Raewyn Connell

3 months ago

The History of University Life Research Seminars in Higher Education series continues in June, with Emerita Professor Raewyn Connell, who will speak on ‘Good University Histories’. Raewyn will introduce themes from her new book The Good University and reflect on their relation to the historiography of university life. First, the occasion and background of the book. Then, its connection with familiar issues: the social role of universities, their commercialization and the rise of managerial power. Then, some possibly less familiar themes: universities as part of the history of imperialism; the labour process and the workforce, especially the non-academic workforce; and the story of alternative and experimental universities. If we have time, we might get to the question of why these histories matter. The seminar will be Wednesday 5 June 2019, St Paul’s College Senior Common Room, noon to 1.30pm. Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting paper with plenty
