Resistance, Reclaiming, Organizing, and Black Lives Matter in Education
Edited By Anthony J. Nocella II and Erik Juergensmeyer
Fighting Academic Repression and Neoliberal Education is a cutting-edge investigation of the alarming state of education today. This practical how-to handbook gives readers tactics and strategies to organize and challenge forces that threaten liberatory critical education. Drawn from scholars and activists from across the world, the fifteen chapters guide readers through a strategic method of understanding the academic industrial complex and corporate education in the twenty-first century. Education is being hijacked by banks and corporations that are tearing apart the foundational fabric of academic freedom, resulting in mass standardized education and debt for all students and furthering racial inequity. This is a must-read for anyone interested in democracy, education, social justice, critical pedagogy, and Black Lives Matter.

“Adjunct Professor Hoping Some Student Leaves Behind Warm Pair of Gloves Today.”
– HEADLINE FROM THE ONION, DECEMBER 2, 2015
This essay is cowritten by two philosophers. One is currently an adjunct; the other is a tenured professor. Both have recently been involved in meetings and collective actions on behalf of adjunct rights. Each will look at the role of “citizenship” as it relates to adjunct labor within current higher education in the United States. In this essay, we look at citizenship from two different perspectives: (1) the citizenship of adjuncts within the university and (2) the citizenship of students who are educated by adjuncts.
