Critical Scholarship in Neoliberal Times

Despite decades of work by scholars committed to transforming the academy, the spaces in which we produce our scholarship continue to be characterized by gendered, raced, classed and heteronormative exclusions (e.g. hiring, teaching, tenure and promotion, publication). The neoliberalization of higher education, including attempts to internationalize education that perpetuate global divisions, and cutbacks to sites of critical scholarship, including gender studies, ethnic studies, African-American studies, and queer studies, have further exacerbated these exclusions. How is our scholarship implicated and affected? How might we respond to these challenges?

Panelists include Tami Navarro, Harjant Gill, Jennifer Nash, Liz Montegary, and Catherine Sameh. Moderated by Jennifer Terry.

This panel was part of The Scholar & Feminist Conference XXXIX – Locations of Learning: Transnational Feminist Practices.
