Spanning both media and textual practices, Imaging the Academy offers fresh readings of the representation of higher education in popular culture. The collection contains unexpected insights into tense relations between seemingly opposing pedagogical and institutional forms, from accelerated marketing of the academic business to the assumed professional formation of the university scholar-teacher. The authors make essential contributions to the critical discussion and debate about the status, role, and privileged cultural force of the university in contemporary society..Warren E. Crichlow, Faculty of Education, York University
What is 'the play of the personal' in the present historical moment? Are intellectual breakthroughs rendered fads in a consumerist and careerist academic culture? Have we faculty become mere bureaucrats of the mind? To these and other key questions, this crucial collection is devoted..William F. Pinar, St. Bernard Parish Alumni Endowed Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Louisiana State University
