1. The Future Is Now: A Thousand Tiny Universities
Journal: PHILOSOPHY AND THEORY IN HIGHER EDUCATION Volume 1 Issue 3 Year 2019 pp. 9 - 28
This essay draws on reading and experience to meditate on our present moment in the university with an eye to its future. Barbara M. Grant argues that an important question for all who work in our universities is how can we dwell there alert to the daily possibilities for transformation towards our imagined future university. Grant proposes the idea of a thousand tiny universities—a reworking of Deleuze and Guattari’s thousand tiny sexes (2013)—as one that offers a non-antagonistic basis for continually proposing and enacting in the present the kind of university we cherish.
