Class, Politics, and Higher Education: Universities and the Capitalist State Thirty Years On

By Clyde W. Barrow, Isaac Kamola, and Heather Steffen

Abstract:

This conversation between Clyde W. Barrow, Isaac Kamola, and Heather Steffen uses the thirty-year anniversary of Universities and the Capitalist State as an opportunity to examine various transformations in academic labor. This discussion investigates how Barrow’s book, an early contribution to the field of critical university studies, not only demonstrates how universities are political institutions but also explores the limitations and possibilities of this critique of academic labor for contemporary political organizing within and against the corporate and neoliberal university.
