The University Unthought : Notes for a Future, Hardback Book

The University Unthought : Notes for a Future Hardback

Edited by Debaditya (Kazi Nazrul University, India) Bhattacharya



Why is it important to have a revolutionary critical pedagogy?

What are the new inter/disciplinary engagements possible within the university?

What will it be like to live and learn in this university of the future?

Drawing on these essential questions, this volume explores the political future(s) of the university.

It does not take a simplistic recourse to the tenets of liberal democracy but seeks a more engaged positioning of the university space within everyday practices of the social.

It cross-examines the history of this ‘ideal’ university’s relationship with the banal everyday, the ‘apolitical’ outside and what exceeds intellectual reason, to finally question if such historicizing of the university is necessary at all. Along with its companion The Idea of the University: Histories and Contexts, this brave new intervention makes a compelling foray into the political future(s) of the university.

It will be of interest to academics, educators and students of the social sciences and humanities, especially education.

It will also be of use to policy-makers and education analysts, and be central to the concerns of any citizen.
