The New York Times: Neoliberalism and Higher Education

By Stanley Fish

I’ve been asking colleagues in several departments and disciplines whether they’ve ever come across the term “neoliberalism” and whether they know what it means. A small number acknowledged having heard the word; a very much smaller number ventured a tentative definition.

Neoliberalism in higher education is alive and well!
Watch the vid to see the Vice Chancellor (Head) of the University of Canterbury to rat one another out in order to save their jobs in an environment where “hard times” make for “hard choices.”
