Introduction: Left Intellectuals and the Neoliberal University
American Quarterly (2012)
  • Margot Weiss, Wesleyan University
  • Naomi Greyser
This American Quarterly forum builds on a symposium held in 2011 at Wesleyan University on the relationship between academia and activsm. Our symposium was inspired by a pair of concerns: that academics too often either romanticize activism as the site where “real” political work happens or else ascribe an abstracted radical politics to quotidian academic work.
