about this item

Current global trends suggest a time of exciting possibility for scholars as critical, community-engaged, and participatory epistemologies come to the fore.Yet, just as possibilities invite academics to broaden and deepen scholarship in ways unimagined a decade before, a parallel shift towards a neoliberal and accountability-focused culture – both in the academy and in society – imperils every new opportunity.?In Dissident Knowledge, Noam Chomsky, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Yvonna S. Lincoln, and others delve into the effects of colonialism, neoliberalism, and audit culture on higher education. They present promising avenues of resistance and show how to shape, reinvent, and construct life for faculty in institutions that serve as both a safe harbour and enforcer.
