45. Neoliberalism in academia and its impact on the humanities, with Tamar Hodos

March 11, 2021

A conversation with Tamar Hodos (University of Bristol) on how the application of market logic to humanities research and teaching is driving up tuition costs for students and their families, making good academic positions scarcer, and eroding the institution of tenure, which protects the integrity of research and teaching.
