Navigating Neoliberalism in the Academy, Nonprofits, and Beyond

Soniya Munshi and Craig Willse

This issue of S&F Online looks at the nonprofit and the university as two key sites in which neoliberal social and economic formations are constituted and contested. Emerging out of a 2009 meeting at the American Studies Association Annual Meeting convened by Munshi and Willse and drawing on the theoretical and historical models articulated by INCITE!

Janet R. Jakobsen and Catherine Sameh
